Julene Hodges Schroeder was raised in an Ethiopia that was beginning to emerge from centuries of isolation. When her parents went as missionaries in 1945, they expected to make sacrifices and were tested to the limit. But they never realized how much they would fall in love with that beautiful land and its people, nor how Ethiopia would capture their hearts forever. Under An African Sky is a story you can read to your children and grandchildren, about a girl who lived an unusual life and loved it. Julene writes the story of her childhood with warmth and honesty, sharing its hilarious moments, its lasting friendships and a particular sorrow that is common to missionaries’ kids. You will be warmed to discover how the gospel was introduced in those long-ago days by people who truly did “seek first the kingdom” and how they happily gave up everything for what they considered the greatest adventure.
