Roy Cerny is a quiet, service-oriented guy who loves to help people. He finds joy in working to meet the needs of others. He is a veteran of short-term mission trips to Jamaica, Paraguay, Nepal, Mexico, and five different areas of Chile.
These trips involved church and home construction, evangelism, street ministry, teaching, and assisting missionaries and church leaders in each of the countries. In the United States, he and his friends traveled to storm-ravaged New Jersey to help rebuild homes. He also participated in numerous projects at his district Bible camp as well as helped with projects at his local church.
Now in his seventies, Roy feels the need to share his experiences in a book with the hope that others might experience the changes he has seen in his own life. These stories of his trips and projects, told chronologically, portray the growth of his faith as he opened himself up to be a useful instrument for the Lord. What he has seen and done, as told through his short stories, will hopefully build in the reader a desire to experience the life changes a mission trip can provide. The author is so emotionally tied to many of the experiences he depicts that he finds it difficult to relate the stories without tearing up from the memories. It is his hope that you will also find joy and satisfaction in letting the Lord take you where He needs you to be.
