Books by Elton Rengstorf
In a small, dark chapel in a remote village in India, missionary Elton Rengstorf wondered how he would conduct a worship service without any electricity—without any light. But as the villagers began to arrive for the evening service, each family carrying a source of light—a small oil lamp, a candle, a Coke bottle filled with kerosene—the glimmers of light they brought with them not only brightened their small chapel, they symbolized a greater light: the revelation of God’s love for them. It symbolized their love for each other, and the care and support their fellowship provided them in what was a difficult way of life. By sharing their light with each other, the villagers shared their simple joy and lit up the chapel with bright love and faith.
This beautifully written collection of stories about the people, places, and incidents that enlightened the author’s travels through life shows us that miracles can happen when we share little glimmers of light and brighten our sometimes difficult and dark path with the light of the world, Jesus, our Savior and Lord.
