“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

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. 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.
