Pirates! Smugglers! Adventure!
A Jack and Jenny Mystery Book 1: Smugglers in Hong Kong by Anthony Bolback
Jack and Jenny Carlton, twelve-year old twins, hope to find adventure as they go with their parents on a business trip to Hong Kong. Their new-found Chinese Friends, Tim and Ruth Chen, share the twins’ quest for adventure, but it seems unlikely they would meet any smugglers. But God has other plans. Before long both families become involved with the capture of a smuggling operation. The excitement of an actual encounter with smugglers helps strengthen the Carltons’ strong beliefs in God and His loving care in their lives.
The combination of an intriguing mystery and the strong Christian life is skillfully interwoven by Anthony Bollback. He has been telling his children and grandchildren stories with a purpose for many years. Powerful Christian truths which change people’s lives have always been communicated through stories. It is the way Jesus taught people. This book is the first of the Jack and Jenny Mystery Series which is designed to teach great spiritual truths in a simple and exciting way for children to grasp.
