God’s Leading Hand by J. B. Williams chronicles his life story as a pioneer missionary to the Bariba tribe in Dahomey (Benin), West Africa. When he and his wife arrived in Dahomey in 1946, they were greeted by thousands of pagan Bariba tribe members but only one known Christian. Williams’s autobiography presents the difficulties of adjusting to the Bariba culture, learning their language, and translating the Gospel of John into the Bariba language. After they left the field in 1952, Williams and his wife traveled the globe raising funds for other missionary endeavors.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Lynne Engaging, easy to identify with characters
Very enjoyable and uplifting read...I felt like I was with the characters, cheering them on. The author was quick to point out that the Lord took care of his family through some tough and strange situations.
