On Thanksgiving Day in 2016, Alan and Sydney received a call that changed their life as they knew it. Sydney’s mother’s disease was getting worse—with a life expectancy of only eight short months. Alan and Sydney now face the heartbreaking decision of having to leave the place God has called them to, in order to care for Sydney’s mom in her last days.
This week, we bring you an encore of the second episode in our From the Field series. In September of 2015, God called Alan and Sydney to share the gospel through their new business in the Middle East amongst a Muslim people group. After being in the field for only a year, they quickly witnessed how God was moving in the hearts of those they ministered to—all the while, growing in sincere love and community with their new friends.
