Overview

Sabotage cripples young Slava Gdansk's plans as he leads a newborn church in the small Russian community of Bolshoigorsk. A mysterious fire, scandalous accusations and a jail stint lead Slava and his wife, Oksana, to place great hope in a visiting team of American short-term missionaries to bolster their courage. This handful of idealistic Americans, beset by a shocking tragedy before leaving the States, has less than two weeks to help rally the fledgling church. Tony Barton, a loose gun on the team, grapples with which is more dangerous: the covert persecution or the beautiful Russian translator.

Interactions with angels, both in worship and warfare, are not enough to support the wavering faithful. Would God truly allow the severe afflictions they must endure? As the surprising opposition hammers the devoted, the mission is not only for the survival of the church, but also for their very lives.


Author Bio: Michael Huckabee has been a short-termer himself, in addition to serving as a worship leader, retreat speaker, teacher and physician assistant. He lives in Lincoln, Nebraska with his wife and their four children.
