From the Back Cover
Contained in these pages is a story that will change your life.
Consider yourself warned.
This is the story of one of the most courageous, radically obedient people we know.
Tracy Evans, a physician assistant, has treated rebel guerillas while captive on an Asian island. She's sipped tea in a Mozambican hut while bullets whistled through the grass walls. She's cared for 900 HIV-positive orphans.
In these pages you will find not only gripping, unembellished true stories of Tracy's exploits around the globe, but the more amazing account of what God can do with--and through--one person's raw faith and obedience.
Tracy's life has had an unbelievable impact on us, our families and our friends. We pray that you, too, will be inspired to radical obedience, faith adventures and wild trust in God's power and purpose for your life.
Put on your seatbelt and let the journey begin!
Love in Christ,

From the streets of LA to a small mountain town in Northern California, from the Philippines to Kiribati to the bush of Mozambique, Tracy Evans lives her life as an ambassador from the kingdom of God. She remains true to the values of that kingdom, no matter where she is or what circumstances she faces. God has redeemed her thoroughly, using even the difficult things from her growing up years to keep her fearless in the face of hardships and sometimes even life-threatening situations. Tracy is a physician's assistant who trained at Stanford, and she offers compassionate medical care for people in desperate need. But she offers them much more than that. She preaches the good news of Jesus with her words as well as the example of her life, and offers people an encounter with God that will change their lives forever.
Tracy oversees a ministry in Mozambique that includes support for almost 1000 orphaned babies per month. In a country where life expectancy can be as low as 38 years, where AIDS and other diseases often kill young parents way before their time, there are many orphans. This ministry encourages surviving family members to take in the orphans, and gives them the nutritional and medical support they need to do it. In this way the children remain in their home villages and are able to grow up into adults who are culturally and socially well-adjusted. Her ministry also supports two thriving prison ministries, where inmates who have no hope receive love, acceptance, and a new identity as children of God.
Tracy does all this yet remains down to earth and humble. She speaks to prisoners and tells them that the only difference between them and the people who are free is that the free ones have not been caught, that we are all sinners. She tells them that her earliest memory is of going to a prison to visit her own father, who was incarcerated for all of her young life. Though she is accomplished and skilled and full of the grace and wisdom acquired through following Jesus faithfully for most of her life, she reaches out to people by letting them know that she herself, just like the rest of us, needed a savior. Then she makes it clear that after a real encounter with God, we don't have to remain broken humans. There is a life of adventure and wholeness and joy available to anyone who wants it. Tracy is a prime example of this kind of life, lived on the Edge and to the fullest.
You have to read it to believe it, and it's all true! It will inspire you to ask God "What could you do with me if I were willing to say Yes to You?"
