When a revolt at his father’s factory shatters the tranquility of family life, Alf races to get help at the nearest Russian town, only to return home and find it ransacked and ripped apart. His beloved parents are missing, but matters only seem to get worse when he and his brother are kidnapped. Even through such perils in Tsarland, these brave boys believe that God is with them and will open up the way before them.
Alf is not the only one who learns to trust the will of God in his life. In the story “The Factory Boy,” little Johnny and his mother and sister are completely destitute. They fear they may not be able to survive the cold and hunger of even one more hard winter. Then Johnny finds something that will change their lives. One day he picks up a silver dollar—more money than he knows what to do with, but Johnny never spends the money. See just how far God’s provision reaches, even when the wealth of this world fades away.
Finally, meet Annie King, a thoughtful young girl too busy to do any work for theLord. Though eager and willing to serve the Lord, little Annie spends all of her time managing her baby brother. Follow her as she learns to discern God’s calling in her life, in “Annie King’s Question.”
