Overview

Do you long to have stability and security? A nice car? A rewarding job with good pay?
A spacious home in a comfortable neighborhood? Maybe God has something else planned for your life.

Living by faith is a frightening idea for many people. It certainly was to Peter Jordan, who had a good job, a beautiful home, two newer cars, a growing family, and a respectable position in his church. In fact, entering missions was the last thing he thought he’d ever do. But God called him and his family out of the ordinary and into an uncertain, but ultimately fulfilling, life of trust and obedience.

This true story of a family who shocked friends and family by leaving their comfortable life to follow God's call will challenge your assumptions and inspire you to new endeavors. Faith can be a frightening place, but nothing compares to the adventure of entrusting yourself to the capable and loving arms of the Father.

“Like Proverbs and Ecclesiastes, this is an ‘old man’s’ book, crafted from years of experience, told in scintillating and compelling detail. But, like biblical Wisdom, the book goes far beyond human experience. Peter Jordan begins and ends with the ‘fear of the LORD’ (Prov. 1:7; 9:10), transforming what might have been just a good yarn into an urgent call to the next generation. Don’t miss it!”
--Dr. Carl E. and Betsy Armerding, former president and professor of Old Testament, Regent College, Vancouver, BC

“I met the Jordan Family in Quebec before they joined YWAM and have been a friend and observer during their whole journey. They have proven that steps of faith will be rewarded. They have not only influenced every geographical part of the world, they have helped pioneer renewed understanding of God’s biblical ways.”
--Dean Sherman, international Bible teacher and author

“The Last Thing I’d Ever Do is an inspiring read. Peter shares with candor and clarity both the inward and outward journey of his life, which will take you from China to Canada to the islands of the sea. But it is also a how-to book -- a book about relationships and what happens to a family when the parents uproot the children from a comfortable lifestyle and take them to the rigors of a pioneering missionary life. ... It is a laugh-and-cry book, as you relive the ups and downs of one family’s journey from early pioneering to maturity.”
--Loren and Darlene Cunningham, founders, Youth With A Mission
