At the Foot of the Snows tells the inspiring story of an American family living among the virtually unknown Kham Magar of Nepal, developing a deep bond of friendship that transcended their cultural divide. Through years of study and hard work, they translated Scripture into the Kham language, igniting a spark of interest in the gospel that would fan to life through years of persecution. Through it all, David and Nancy Watters struggled to demonstrate that gospel to these people who lived, in the words of the Khams, "at the foot of the snows."

Walrod, PhD, DrCM, Philippines President, Canada Institute of Linguistics, Trinity Western University "The book deserves a wider audience than the missionary narrative genre." Dr. Stephen Bezruchka, Author of Trekking Nepal, 8th Ed., Department of Global Health, UW School of Public Health "Rarely have I read a missionary narrative so riveting" Dr. David L. Jeffrey, Distinguished Senior Fellow and Director of Manuscript Research in Scripture and Tradition, Institute for Studies in Religion, Baylor University "You will appreciate the depth of insight, linguistic skill, and fearless commitment of David Watters and his family.

Review quote

"This is a story of hardship, discouragement and pain, and faith, endurance and joy. In turn I was moved to tears and elation at the way the Lord led the Watters and answered their prayers, and I have been deeply challenged about my own faith and commitment. This is the best missionary biography I have read in a very long time." -- Mark Pickett ""
