I can't tell you my name.
I can't tell you where I live.
I can't tell you who I work for, or any details about the people with whom I work.
Because where I live, my line of work is not exactly legal.
But if you can pardon the vagueness, I have a story for you.
Edge of the Map is a memoir of the calling and adjustment, success and failure of our first year as missionaries to a closed country in the 10/40 window. It tells the story of how my family and I lived out the challenges and blessings of the lives we tried to lay down for Jesus. It is the book I would have wished for, had I known the right questions to ask.
How do I know that I'm called overseas?
How do I move beyond callousness and distraction?
What do I do once I've accepted a call to the nations?
What issues arise after I step into my calling?
How do I go about resolving those issues?
Edge of the Map speaks to these questions in hopes that our journey to a closed country will help nudge the souls of a young, poised generation toward the calling God is whispering over their lives.
