“Don’t waste your pain,” says unlikely missionary Avis Goodhart. She didn’t – and neither should you. Despite a background of childhood abuse, dyslexia, and marital infidelity, Avis took her first international mission trip at age fifty. The church, school, and orphanage she later founded in northern Peru, all products of both her pain and her radical obedience to the Lor “Don’t waste your pain,” says unlikely missionary Avis Goodhart. She didn’t – and neither should you. Despite a background of childhood abuse, dyslexia, and marital infidelity, Avis took her first international mission trip at age fifty. The church, school, and orphanage she later founded in northern Peru, all products of both her pain and her radical obedience to the Lord, have brought thousands of others out of the dust. This compelling story of an ordinary woman who serves God in extraordinary ways will challenge, inspire, and empower you to: • Eliminate excuses from your life • Recognize that in God’s kingdom, availability matters more than ability • Allow your pain to produce – not prevent – your obedience • Serve the Lord with the same abandon shown by one unlikely missionary Note: Proceeds from the sale of this book are sent to the author’s orphanage in Peru. About the Authors Avis Goodhart, founder of Go Ye Ministries, is a missionary, Bible teacher, and conference speaker who has blessed audiences across North, South, and Central America. Although she holds a B.S.Ed. and M.Ed. from the University of Arkansas, her primary qualifications include the pain and obstacles she’s encountered along the way. These provide both insight and passion for her work in bringing the lives of countless orphans, volunteers, and others out of the dust. Avis, a widow, has five children and twenty-two grandchildren. Marti Pieper’s prayer involvement moved her to assist Brent and Deanna Higgins in telling their son’s story in I Would Die for You, which became a young adult bestseller. Marti, who has a B.S.Ed. from Ohio State University and an M.Div. from Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary, has written multiple books and often teaches at writers’ conferences.

    Very Inspirational The author does not hide the darker truth of reality and rather shares Avis's inspirational perspective of looking at life once she looks back and joins the dots. God turned a mess into a beautiful message !

    From a difficult growing up to being used for God's Glory... David's story is amazing. I pray that all of us would find our calling. Praise the Lord for faithful servants.

    Out of the Dust By: Avis Goodhart These stories always seem to be sad. But God can work through it. God can put back together a broken vessel. This is the story of Avis Goodhart missionary. Avis has a missions in Peru where she helps women and children. Having gone through abuse as she grew up her experience of what she went through helped her on the mission field to help others.

Having gone through abuse as she grew up her experience of what she went through helped her on the mission field to help others. I know myself I have been through some bad situations only to see down the road how the Lord could use me to help others with same problems. We need to keep a open heart and let the Lord use us where He needs us. avis has done a wonderful work in Peru. Having faith in God would provide for her and protect her to help his children. So there are many particles of sand in the dust will you be that one little piece to serve God and to help His children? I love stories of missionaries those who bow down with a humble heart.

    This was one of the most inspiring books I have read to date. Avis tells her story of coming up in a rather hard childhood moving from place to place, many times not having a true home. Abuse that she endured. The teenage marriage and problems within that, yet her loyalty to God never seemed to waiver and if it did somewhat she always returned to her beliefs. If you read this story with an open mind and open heart you cannot help but to like Avis as a person and as a missionary and to admire all This was one of the most inspiring books I have read to date.

If you read this story with an open mind and open heart you cannot help but to like Avis as a person and as a missionary and to admire all she has accomplished through those trials. At the end of the book Avis tells readers to come to Peru and see the school and to visit the children, I must say it is definitely something I would love to do.

    Out of the Dust: Story of an Unlikely Missionary is a group of short chapters about real people that became missionaries in Central and South America. The purpose is to sell a complete story of each person but not to do more than give a taste of the rest of the story. It is full of Bible verses but just leave a feeling of being an advertisement to sell books and not really tell the story of the missionary work.

    Interesting book about faith, heart ache and great blessings. The life story is an amazing journey that not only tells the good work being done by this extraordinary woman, but what she went through to get to the place she is today. It is always amazing to me to see the faith people have in spite of or maybe because of the hardships life hands them. The author she be commended for her good works and for sharing this story with readers.

    Overcoming the past by helping others. I read only a sampler of the book. This is a story of one woman turning a childhood of hurts into an ability to reach out and help others that are hurting. Tells of her reliance on God saying yes when everything else said no.

    Easy read I enjoyed reading this book and was interested from start to finish. It follows the author through her childhood and relates her story to present day.

    Anecdotal life bio Short bio of early life. No missionary coverage. Didn't expect much. Quick read. Precious life of one of God's chosen.

    This is just a sampler, so a *very* quick read. I wish I had the full edition, but from what I read, it was interesting. The format the author wrote in was different than most books I've read, and I have to say I enjoyed it. Seeing the events in her past that helped her connect with the people on the mission field was great. I do, however, wish there were more details in the mission field. I feel like the sampler left me knowing a lot about her life and past, but little about the people she inte This is just a sampler, so a *very* quick read.
