Four young men with bright futures step off the path of graduate school and careers in search of something more--something epic. Desiring more from life than well-paying jobs and large bank accounts, they embark on a worldwide expedition, forging into the Guatemalan highlands, Russia's far north, the mountains of South Africa, villages in Bangladesh, Nepal's Himalayas, rural Vietnam and other rarely traveled lands. Through journal entries and first person accounts, Four Souls weaves together the tales of their journey, including near-death escapes and bribe-seeking officials, prison camps and race riots, hurricanes and illegal smuggling. More than just a collection of gripping stories, Four Souls chronicles the dawning realization that came through the adventure: that the life they were seeking is in the reach of all who are willing to grasp it.
Jedd Medefind serves as president of the Christian Alliance for Orphans (CAFO), which unites more than 140 respected Christian organizations to labor together and equip Christians for effective adoption, foster care and global orphan care ministry. Previously, Jedd led the White House Office of Faith-Based and Community Initiatives, which, as the Harvard Political Review describes, ""fundamentally changed the governments strategy for improving the lives of the downtrodden." He's written several books, including Upended: How Following Jesus Remakes Your Words and World (Passio, 2012). Jedd and his wife, Rachel, love the great outdoors and live in California with their five children.
