FORT WORTH, Texas (SWBTS) – Despite the obstacles and challenges Rebekah Naylor has experienced in her 35 years as a medical missionary, administrator, teacher and strategy coordinator, the call to ministry she received as a teenager continues to fuel her passion for ministry.

Told by accomplished storyteller Camille Lee Hornbeck, the book highlights Naylor’s early years, academic achievements and service as a medical missionary for the Southern Baptist Convention’s International Mission Board at Bangalore Baptist Hospital in Bangalore, India.
