About the Author
Brian enjoys history and climbing out as far as he can on the branches of his family tree. The boys in this book were all found on those long and thick branches.
Traveling extensively, Brian speaks all over the world and teaches young people to live and work in cultures very different from those they grew up in. He is passionate to let every nation know about God's open invitation to join His family.
Raised in the tiny town of Fraser, Colorado (400 residents at the time), Helen has lived in such varied places as New York City; Salmon, Idaho; Desamparados, Costa Rica; and Dambadarjaa, Outer Mongolia. In Mongolia she homeschooled missionary kids from Kindergarten to eighth grade and taught English as a second language to ages four through seventy. Helen was also helped begin the first Christian Women's meetings in Mongolia, that eventually became Women's AGLOW Mongolia. She returned to the United States in 1996, where she currently resides with her husband and dogs in Southwest Colorado. Helen's many travels to Europe, Asia and the Middle East, has given her a deep love and appreciation of historical time and place, which made working on this book a thorough delight.
Helen and the author served together in Mongolia in the first half of the 1990s.
