Sometimes following God looks a lot like insanity. Today Ruth Ripken shares her story of being called to missions as a young girl to the moment where tragedy struck her and her husband leaving Africa questioning: “Is the gospel worth it?” Ruth will adamantly show us that the answer to that question is a resounding “yes” but it doesn’t come without life’s hardships and steps of faith, because the mission of God isn’t a matter of location, it’s a matter of obedience.
Ruth and her husband, Nik, along with their three sons served 36 years overseas. After seven years of working in Somalia (where anyone who chose to follow Jesus faced persecution), the Ripkens went to believers who live in places where that was the norm. They traveled to over 70 countries to learn from followers who live for Jesus under difficult circumstances and who want to help us partner wisely with them.
