Quick Overview

Lester Hawkes always knew he was going to be a missionary. He just didn’t realize it would happen so soon! When the call came in 1945, he and Freda married quickly and set off for Papua and New Guinea, known to the world for crocodiles, isolation, tribal fighting and amazing cultures.
From coral-fringed Papua to the incredible Highlands of New Guinea and remote Pitcairn Island, Lester and Freda worked tirelessly to cure disease, relieve superstition and share their love of God as medical missionaries. Through it all they discovered that answering God’s call really does lead to incredible adventure.


“The vision of men and women like Lester and Freda Hawkes was—and still is—God’s mission! I hope the stories in this book will help refresh our collective memory and inspire a new generation of readers to expect adventure in God’s service.” —Dr. Barry Oliver, president, South Pacific Division of Seventh-day Adventists


Lester Hawkes, with his wife Freda, is now retired in Cooranbong, New South Wales, Australia. Brad Watson is a lecturer in international development studies at Avondale College of Higher Education in Cooranbong, NSW. He is author of the Finding David series of books.
