CALLED TO SERVE: Celebrating Missionary Work Around the World,” by Mike Winder, Covenant Communications, $15.99, 106 pages (nf)

“Called to Serve” gives a peek into missionaries’ lives through their photos, whether they serves stateside or in a far-flung corner of the globe.

Mike Winder has gathered and compiled photos from missionaries to share different aspects of missionary work for The Church of Jesus of Latter-day Saints that are the same yet different, as each area is unique.

It’s divided into a dozen different sections, including “I’ll Go Where You Want Me to Go,” with missionaries in scenic and iconic area shots, and “And They Did Eat,” with a variety of food, to “I Love To See the Temple,” with missionaries at temples, and “How Great Shall Be Your Joy,” which showcases a variety of places missionaries baptize, whether in a temporary font in South Africa, a beach in Nicaragua or a lake in Scotland or hauling water to fill a font in Brazil.
