Joshua’s Mission is a new standalone novel in the Plain and Simple Miracles collection from popular author Vannetta Chapman. These stories of love and family and Amish community in Oklahoma tell of the miracles that can happen when lives are lived in service to God and to one another.

Joshua Kline travels from his farm in Oklahoma to offer aid to an Englisch town on the gulf coast of Texas after a category 4 hurricane has ravaged the area. He brings his brother with him, who needs a change of environment. The last thing he wants for Alton is another brush with the law. He is pleasantly surprised when he hears that Becca Troyer, the bishop’s granddaughter, plans on joining their team.
What will Joshua find when he arrives in Texas? A lack of electricity, certainly, which poses little problem for the Amish volunteers as they help restore order from destruction. But a budding romance? A call from God? And a possible healing of his relationship with Alton?
Joshua’s Mission is a story of love, forgiveness, and the grace of God that carries us through even the worst situations.


Vannetta Chapman writes another amazing Amish story that is so heartwarming, I really wanted to be a part of this book. When Joshua decides to go to Texas to help out with the Englischers who lost so much in the destruction of a horrible hurricane, he never expected all that would happen on this trip. Having his younger brother with him will be a challenge, since he has been getting in to so much trouble at home.

I love the way Ms. Chapman weaves together Amish and Englisch, clearly showing that there is not a lot of difference in the troubles and hardships between the two. Of course the Amish don’t drive, or have electricity in their homes, but that really made the stay in Texas much better with the Amish than those Englishcher were dealing with it. It was fun and interesting reading about them all working together as one group.

And I notice several people mentioning the fact that we shouldn’t be so quick to judge. I’m getting much better at not judging a person by the way they look. Sometimes we miss out on getting to know some wonderful people just because we kinda shun them because they don’t look and act like

we do. I appreciate Ms. Chapman for sending this strong message.

I can go on and on about this book, but you need to read it for yourself and find out what an amazing story this is. Joshua’s Mission is one book that is a keeper for me, so I can read the entire series together. I highly recommend this book for you to read.
