Book Description

11 Oct 2013

They Came to Help. They Didn't Expect a Mission Under Fire.

Mission Under Fire is the true story of a short-term mission trip in Haiti that went terribly wrong the night 14 Americans were terrorized above a humble medical clinic in the Port-Au-Prince countryside. The missionaries fought off six bandits armed with semi automatic pistols, with nothing more than knives, coke bottles, and prayer. In a miraculous fight for their lives, these brave survivors lived through hell, but have Heaven to thank for the experience.

Told by Rex Byers, one of the wounded missionaries, this story will inspire you to take stock of your life, hug your loved ones, and strengthen your faith.

5.0 out of 5 stars True story of God protecting his missionaries 1 Nov 2013
By Jill Vaughn - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This story is intense, I cried, I panicked, I even laughed nervously occasionally. This is real and raw, there's no action hero who comes in and shoots out the bad guys in one quick move. They had nothing to fight back with except for coke bottles and Prayers, and yet somehow they all lived to tell about it. A must read. God protected them, some of them got shot, but everyone lived and he placed the right people in the right places to make sure everyone survived with a deeper understanding of God's power and mercy.

5.0 out of 5 stars Triumph over Tragedy***** 30 Jan 2014
By marilyn sullivan - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This story rivals the best fictional thrillers with the exception this is a true story. The background of the missionaries mission is throughly explained. I felt I knew the Haiti people as I was reading the book. During and after the attack, I counted no less than twenty miracles God performed on behalf of His people. Gods grace and mercy abundantly abound in the account of Mission Under Fire. The survivors resonate forgiveness and gratitude toward the attackers and God respectively. I appreciate the author sharing both his weaknesses and strengths reguarding his past and during this incredible ordeal. This novel is a must read!!! I could not put the book down. Thank You***

5.0 out of 5 stars Thought provoking and realistic story. 21 Jan 2014
By Greta - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I found the story well written, including the author's own version of the time in Haiti and beyond. I believe he put a lot of time and thought in to the crafing of the events. I have recommended it to anyone who has interest in Christian mission.

5.0 out of 5 stars Dealing with what the world throws at you 11 Dec 2013
By twokeys - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
Great book! I had followed the story on local news. Good to get first hand account. This book illustrates doing God's work is sometimes a big challenge but His grace gets us through. Rex was brave guy. Not just in the face of attack but in sharing his life's personal struggles in print. I would recommend this book to anyone thinking about going on a mission trip.

5.0 out of 5 stars Courage, hope, and faith 2 Nov 2013
By Kristin A. Scearce - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
Disclaimer: I received an e-copy in exchange for an honest review.

This story is just amazing. It's hard to read about so tragic an incident, especially when it happened to people whose only purpose for being there was to help rebuild land and lives. However, it has a wonderful message of hope, faith, and forgiveness, and I would recommend it to anyone, and certainly to those who are, or wish to become, missionaries. The men and women involved could have given up and/or lost their faith, both in God and humanity, but they didn't, and it seems they're all stronger for it. I'm very glad this book was written, and I look forward to passing it on to others.
