Summary "Called to a mission of a lifetime, Peter travels light-years from his wife, Bea to an astonishing new environment. He's to preach to a seemingly friendly native population struggling with a dangerous illness and hungry for Peter's teachings. But when Bea's letters from home become increasingly desperate--natural disasters are rampant and governments are crumbling--Bea's faith begins to falter. Peter, rattled and heartsick, is forced to choose: historic humanitarian work or the love of his life." Publisher description
