Soon after 9/11, McCord left the corporate world and followed God to Afghanistan, sometimes into the reach of death. Alive but not unscathed, she has suffered the loss of many things: comfort, safety, even dear friends and fellow sojourners. She discovered that those who love those who go also suffer. Weaving together Scripture, her story, and stories of both those who go and those who send, Kate considers why God calls us to dangerous places and what it means for all involved. Heavy sorrow, joy unimaginable-- and coming closer to the heart of God.
