Nope not 50%, 100%, right!? Shawna’s daughter Bryn is leaving everything behind to share Jesus’ love with people on the other side of the sea. And seeing her daughter take this leap is challenging Shawna to look at what she’s still holding on to. Then Perry wants to be a follower of Jesus and not just a fan—to really trust Jesus when life blindsides him, instead of freaking out. We get an assist here from Dan Mike, teaching pastor at Crossroads in Grand Rapids, MI. Then the martyrdom of Jim Elliot, the willingness of his bride to forgive his killers and to bring them the gospel. And finally, from the human side of things, Abram’s willingness to leave everything behind to follow the living God is why someday there will be a new heavens and new earth!
