The Wayfaring Mission is as current as the latest headlines. It explores the impact of what it means on a personal level to have a mission in an age of terrorism and international conflict. In spite of the dangers posed, there are still persons who feel compelled to go to these restricted areas to minister hope. Whether as aid workers, educators, diplomats, or missionaries, these people risk their lives for their calling. It is their mission. What happens then to those that they leave behind? How do they cope with the loss of their loved one? This story explores the search for meaning from one who was left behind. Ellen Wright thought she had found her safe-haven and rebuilt her life within the thick adobe walls of Wayfaring Mission. When wildfire, government agents, and foreign visitors invade her sanctuary and threaten to overwhelm her, she realizes the faith she had lost is now her only hope to stand.
