Ever thought of pioneering? From 1968 to 1973, Christopher Ruhe and his young family pioneered in Honduras. Traveling on a wing and a prayer—for starters, none of them spoke Spanish—they had to learn everything on the job. While struggling to overcome challenges as diverse as unfamiliar food, tropical maladies, poisonous reptiles, locals with ulterior motives, and actual warfare, they learned a lot about themselves and others, grew to love their adopted country, and even succeeded in their mission!
By the way, Christopher is also an award-winning singer/songwriter, a blues/jazz musician originally from Kansas City, Kansas. He's graciously provided us with two of his albums, Long Way from Kansas City (with The Howland Wolves) and Prayin' Twice (with The Blazin' Band) to give you as thank-you when you purchase Soldiering. Feel free to pick one!
