Book Description, Modified from Back Cover:
In this series of letters written over seven years, Gisela Yohannan shares personally and candidly about events in her own life and ministry--both joys and sorrows--and how the Lord has been faithful through it all. Dear Sister holds out to you the promise of new beginnings, of new mercies every morning and of hope in your walk with Jesus.

My Review:
Dear Sister is a book about walking with God and is mainly aimed at women in ministry, though anyone can be encouraged and learn from it. It's a collection of letters written monthly over seven years.

I'm a supporter of the organization, Gospel for Asia, which she works for. As a part of her work, she started writing a monthly letter to the women missionaries and wives of the missionaries out in the field. Through the letters, you learn about the new--at that time--developments in Gospel for Asia's work, which I found interesting in itself. But the letters were mainly to encourage the reader in their walk with God. You could also see how the author's own walk with God matured over the years. She made a lot of good points, and I'm glad I read this book. I'd recommend it to women and/or those interested in how God is using Gospel for Asia.

You can get the ebook version of this book free through the Gospel for Asia website. They have many other excellent free resources there as well.

If you've read this book, what do you think about it? I'd be honored if you wrote your own opinion of the book in the comments.
