Distant Fields

The Amazing Call of George Markey from Farmland to Missions

Authored by Jed Gourley
Foreword by Jeremy Camp
Edition: 1

When George Markey announced that he was moving to the former Soviet Union with his wife and eight children, many people thought he was crazy. But what happened next would change their own lives and the lives of countless others.

Follow the journey of a man of faith. This is the story of a simple man from the North American Midwest, whose not-so-simple journey led him and his family into the urban centers of Ukraine and Kyrgyzstan.


"George was one of the most servant-hearted men I have ever met."
Jeremy Camp-Grammy-Nominated Singer/Songwriter

"George was a tremendous example. When I think of him, more than anything, I think of simple faith, simple trust. A proof of a man's ministry is when his children continue on in some work and expand it."
Pastor Chuck Smith-Founding Pastor, Calvary Chapel of Costa Mesa

"It was God's love through George that opened the doors in Ukraine and Kyrgyzstan."
Pastor David Guzik-Calvary Chapel of Santa Barbara

"There was no guile with George. No angle. He was never trying to put on a show. He was filled with love. I miss him."
Pastor Joe Focht-Calvary Chapel of Philadelphia

"Jesus said, 'You will know them by their fruits.' George Markey was a man of fruitfulness and integrity. It is amazing to see how God used him in the lives of people around the world."
Pastor Raul Ries-Calvary Chapel Golden Springs
