From the treacherous streets of public housing in America to the barren roads of rural villages in Uganda, one man takes a remarkable missionary journey. Divinely called to separate from his wife, twin daughters, and son to lay his life on the line for a nation of people whom he had never met or longing to encounter. The road from rejection to recognition of his life's calling is lined with people and events which must equip Joshua for this crucial sacrifice. Will his knowledge gained from the streets, college, and others who have made the journey to The Dark Continent prepare him to embark on this trip? Joshua comes face to face with suspected members of a rebel force (the LRA) during a child rescue mission in Masindi. This fast paced entertaining novel contains true engaging stories that will educate and take the reader through a variety of emotions. Dr. Therone Wade Sr. is a servant. Currently, he is the director of the children's ministry in the Bunyoro-Kitara region of Uganda (the oldest kingdom in Africa) as a member of the Encounter Uganda team. Encounter Uganda has been committed there since 1999. Loving and faithful people from preteens to senior citizens make the annual journey more than twice a year to minister to the least, last, and the lost. Therone is a husband, and "my kid's dad" to three children. He has been an educator in the field of the arts and postsecondary education for over a decade. While flawed and fragile, he travels across the street and across the ocean armed with compassion and education for those who thirst of it. Growing up a few houses down from the playwright August Wilson has inspired him to share his passion of writing for the educational and spiritual benefit of others.
