Are you willing to obey God to go wherever he takes you? Do you wrestle with what it practically means to walk with God in obedience?

In this episode, Summer shares her journey of obedience. Summer doesn’t see obedience to God as a burden but as the fruit of a loving relationship with God. Taking the next small step of obedience has led her to places and situations she never imagined. God has used Summer’s steps of obedience as a part of His larger plan to see churches formed among unreached peoples worldwide.

Through challenging circumstances and difficult living conditions, Summer shares stories of God’s protection over her, ways He led her into a deeper relationship with Him, and churches formed in unreached areas.

Summer is a storyteller, teacher, and follower of Christ, devoted to following God where He leads her. She has spent time teaching at a school in Ethiopia, church planting in tribal Uganda, and is now going to work among the unreached in Central Asia.
