Summary
This is the true story of salesman-turned-pastor Michael Spurlock, the tiny church he was ordered to shut down, and a group of refugees from Southeast Asia. Together, they risk everything to plant seeds for a future that might just save them all. Michael's first assignment as their new pastor is to close down All Saints, a dilapidated country church with a dozen devoted members and a mortgage well beyond its means. But when the church hesitantly begins welcoming Karen refugees from Burma -- former farmers scrambling for a fresh start in America -- Michael feels called to an improbable new mission. Jeopardizing his family's future by ignoring his superiors, Michael must choose between completing what he was assigned to do -- close the church and sell the property -- or listening to a still, small voice challenging the people of All Saints to risk it all and provide much-needed hope to their new community. This nonfiction book will tell the true story while also diving deeper into the background of the Karen people, the church, and how a community of believers can coordinate their efforts to help those in need
