1. Clay and Vivian left their home and traveled to an unknown place to minister to people they didn’t know, whose culture was vastly different from theirs. They put themselves in danger for the sake of answering God’s call. How does God prepare a person for this kind of sacrificial service? What all does one need to release in order to serve God with their whole heart?
2. Vivian wasn’t 100% dedicated to the mission like Clay was. Do we enter into areas of service without true commitment? What is the result?
3. Lizzie was ostracized from her tribe because of her Caucasian father. Can you think of reasons people are sometimes cut off from their family due to no fault of their own?
4. Lizzie had a driving determination propelling her toward two goals. She wanted to bridge the gap between her and her grandparents, and she wanted to travel to California to find her father. Why do you think she wanted to reconcile with her grandparents if she was planning on leaving, and why do you think she wanted to reconcile with her father who left her?
5. Clay had a dilemma. He had a heart to reach the Athabascan people for Christ, but he also realized he was falling in love with Lizzie. Association with her would have destroyed his chances to continue working with the tribe. What kind of hard choices do we face and how do we justify the choices we make?
6. Have you ever seen God step in to a seemingly impossible (humanly speaking) situation and work it out in a way that not only honors Him, but also demonstrates how much He loves His children?
