In 2000, Gary Smith, a Jesuit priest, left a familiar life in the Pacific Northwest to become a missionary in Africa. He lived among Sudanese refugees struggling to survive in refugee camps in northern Uganda. He traveled to this dangerous, pitiless place to be with these forsaken people out of conviction that Jesuits should be going where no one else goes. But he also went to discover the answer to the question many of us ask: What is most important in life? Smith's journal is a vivid, inspiring account of the deep connections he forged during his six years as a missionary with the refugees in Africa. Along the way, he discovers a suffering people who, despite being displaced by a brutal civil war, find the spiritual strength to let go of the many and deep sorrows of the past. Through his account of being a missionary in Africa, Smith is both a witness to and a teacher of how the Holy Spirit s power provides this spiritual strength to move forward.
