One woman opens her heart and life to an extraordinary God, stopping at nothing to take him at his word.
Susie Howe mobilizes others to fight injustice against the poorest of the world’s poor; those with HIV, orphans, street children, and persecuted “child witches”. We go on a sweeping journey from a mud hut in remote Zimbabwe, down the back streets of Manila in the Philippines; from the jungles of the Democratic Republic of Congo to war-torn northern Uganda.
Meet some of the unsung heroes who bring life, hope and transformation to individuals and whole communities.
