Written as a sequel to Where Your Treasure Is, this book features the work of the Sztos upon their return from Hokkaido after two decades of mission work. In Singapore, they spent eight years training new missionaries, when Melville served as Dean of the Asian Cross-cultural Training Institute. Then they took off to Hokkaido again for another eight years of evangelism and church-planting work until their retirement from field ministry in 2010. The author shares first-hand knowledge and experience about raising a family and educating children on the mission field. This book is a valuable resource for those looking to gain practical understanding of foreign mission, and of what Northern Japan is like, beyond what is portrayed by media and popular culture.
‘The key word in the title of the book is Heart, and this book, not surprisingly, is full of heart. To begin with, we see the heart of God portrayed – a picture that pervades every page, forming the backdrop of a beautiful story of how God works in our world and especially in the personal worlds of various kinds of people… We see the hearts of a whole spectrum of ordinary folks – mainly Japanese, but also Russians, Thai, Koreans, Chinese and many others.’ – Bishop Emeritus Robert M Solomon
