Where Are the Miracles: Experiences and Testimony of a Doctor on the Mission Field (LifeChange Media,. 2015).

Dr. Bare details experiences in his life and the lives of others that he cannot explain by natural processes. At one time he believed miracles were limited to Bible times, but undeniable experiences changed his mind. He tells of experiences in his life and in his missionary and medical work beginning in Thailand which convinced him that God intervenes in today’s world. Readers who question miracles occurring today are asked to consider his eye-witness report. All are encouraged to stand in awe at our powerful God.

Where Are the Miracles gives eye-witness testimony to experiences which he believes demonstrate the supernatural hand of God. He does not try to force the reader to agree with him but asks the readers to consider the evidence and make up their minds.

“It is a wonderful book. It brought back many memories as well as teaching me many things beyond my child’s awareness at the time. I am so glad Dad has written it!”

A Missionary Doctor Recalls His Childhood in Tibet

Whoever thinks living for God is dull, undemanding, and undramatic should read this venture of faith. In A Tibetan Childhood Dr. Garland Bare tells inspiring stories of his first eleven years growing up in Tibet. Learn how his family faced the challenges of a primitive culture and the opposition of robbers in the mountains and communists from China with overcoming love and faith.

Dr. Bare states, “As the last survivor of the Tibetan Bares, I can look back on a life of incredible blessings.” He documents for his grandchildren and great-grandchildren the faith and faithfulness of his parents and his family’s experiences with God.  “I want them to know of the courage and love shown by my parents in the face of danger.” However, anyone who reads this book will see genuine Christianity in action and the reality of God working in the lives of his people.

In 1937, the communist soldiers of Mao Tse-tung marched over the Tibetan mountains on their way to China with orders to execute any missionaries in their way. The soldiers who came into their valley had only cloth shoes and no gloves. They encountered an early blizzard and some lost their lives and other had severely frozen hands and feet. Amazingly, Dr. Norton Bare, Garland’s father, spent the winter treating the soldiers who had come to kill him.

Lois Bare, Garland’s mother, faced the rigors of a primitive culture with extraordinary strength. Once on a trip, accompanied with two of their children, bandits demanded “protection money.” She asked her children to pray that God would put courage in their hearts and fear in the hearts of the bandits. Not intimidated by their threats, she told the bandits she would not give them protection money because she had the greater protection of her God. The bandits left.

Garland Bare, now 82, became a missionary doctor serving some of his 43-year career as a M. D. on the mission field in Thailand. He lives with his wife, Dorothy, in Joplin, Missouri. A Tibetan Childhood: No Shangri-La, published in 2012, is available from Dr. Garland Bare, 141 Friendship Circle, Joplin, MO 64801 or baregardor@yahoo.com.
