Read as Mariel Ward and her husband, Bob, and their four children travel with Wycliffe Bible translators into the most remote and dangerous Muslim areas of the Philippines, where there is no guarantee of support, supplies, or safety. Readers will discover how God faithfully supplied food for them and a whole impoverished village in times of drought, protected their lives against enemies and Muslim extremists, and favored them with miracles in the most hopeless of moments. This is a true and inspiring story of people who gave up all for the call of God—and in turn saw God move on their behalf in extraordinary, miraculous ways. Get ready to be blessed!
