Description

A successful American surgeon gives away everything he owns and moves to Russia to keep a promise he made to God when he was fourteen. . . and finds unexpected joy. Doctor Bill Becknell moved to Russia and, despite not speaking the language, began providing medical care to people in the villages above the Arctic Circle. He traveled by truck, snowmobile, reindeer sleigh, and helicopter to reach people who had never seen a doctor or heard about Jesus—people who told him that they've been waiting all their lives for someone to explain who created the stars in the night sky. Every trip he made was an adventure. Despite extreme hardships, brokenness, sacrifices, and even near-death experiences along the road, Bill discovered that God has an unfailing love that is beyond comprehension. This is the true story of one man's journey to confront and understand the suffering, pain, confusion, and despair that challenge our lives. Sorrow is a part of living, but how we handle the tragedy in our lives makes all the difference. This book was written to encourage us not to be afraid to step into the unknown abyss of faith. "This book about battles of faith . . . will be an encouragement to everyone who reads it." —Ingeborg Fuhrhop-Stetzler, president, Agape Germany
