A Call to mission takes Ted and Betty Homdrom from rural Minnesota to South Africa. This book reveals the struggles of an American missionary family as South Africa was embroiled in apartheid and the South African Lutherans moved from dependence on missionaries to becoming an autonomous church. The Homdroms lived through the building up of the apartheid system, through the violent measures the government took to enforce it, and were active with those striving for church unity and for freedom. Ted Homdrom provides a behind-the-scenes glimpse of one of the great stories of the global church at the end of the 20th century.. It's a story of how the Spirit changed a church and a society.
Ted and Betty Homdrom served in South Africa from 1950 to 1985. Their service had many expressions, including a term in a South African jail and shoulder to shoulder partnership with the anti-apartheid church leaders such as Desmond Tutu.
