Everyone needs a role model, this book is about mine. Unlike most parents who read fairy tales and folklore to their children before tucking them in bed at night, mine told me the heroic story of my Uncle Don and Aunt Alta Warren who sold everything they owned to move to the battlefield of Vietnam to serve our young soldiers during a time of war. They were not sent by the United States Government, a branch of the military or a church denomination; they were sent by God. They had no official position, title or special training, just a relentless determination to be used by God. This story greatly impacted my life, as so many others to take the gospel into all the world. I don’t know a more compelling story than this.

|Don was a successful businessman in the heating and cooling industry in southern California. Understanding the call of God to minister to soldiers in the war torn country of Vietnam, ‘Mom’ and ‘Pop’ sold their business and left their family behind to open a servicemen’s center in a hamlet called Vung Tau. Arriving in the country at the height of American’s troop count of 500,000, they stayed until there were no more GIs to minister to, nine months before the South Vietnamese government fell in 1975. Because of their hearts, God was able to use them to not only minister to troops but also to the Vietnamese people who desperately looked for hope in the God who never forgets. The Tithe of Their Lives shares the story of two lives poured out over the course of a lifetime to the glory of God.|
