“In the light of eternity, how important is it?”
As one of Max Edwards’ favorite sayings, these words depict Max’s life, which was characterized by laying aside the things of mere earthly importance—a successful farming career, a comfortable home, closeness to friends and family—for pursuits of eternal significance instead.
From obedience in day-to-day decisions to uprooting his whole family, Max strove to accomplish whatever God would have him do. Following God’s call, he, his wife, Dixie, and their children left all that they knew to go to Brazil as missionaries.
Through all the adventures and uncertainties, and with each new opportunity, Max and Dixie boldly followed God. As they obeyed, they saw his faithfulness in their lives, from developing camping ministries to bringing God’s light to places crippled with spiritism.
