Chester and Mary Travis were Christian & Missionary Alliance missionaries to French Indo-China (today known as Viet Nam) between 1925-1975. They experienced an abundant measure of Christ’s indwelling and overflowing life. One of the aims of this book is to share the unusual experiences and their unshakable faith in their Lord and Saviour.
If this book does nothing else but generate and stimulate a continuing prayer vigil for those encountering severe trials behind the “Bamboo Curtain,” it will have served well. That is all that Chester and Mary might ask of us.

Introduction by Drake Travis
I’ve read many missionary biographies and gained something from each of them. This is a powerful story for so many reasons. The Travis’s incredible devotion to the Lord, and his desire to make himself known among those who don’t know Him. Their devotion to the people of Viet Nam, even in the most dangerous and difficult circumstances, and finally their love and devotion to each other. The Christian world needs more people like the Travis’s. They leave a powerful example to follow, the question is “will we follow it?”
~C. Davisson – Amazon Review
Be sure to read this beautiful account of a fascinating couple You won’t be able to put it down. The Travis’ deserve to be named among the stalwarts of the missionaries of the Alliance, and of history of the Church in general.”
I knew Chester and Mary Travis intimately for about thirty years. ‘Mavericks’ is the first word that come to mind when I think of this godly, impassioned, creative, unique couple.
