Erstaunliche Ereignisse entlang der Seidenstraße

Happy endings

“As I watched the ending scene (that lasted about three minutes) I thought about the “happy ending” notion,” says Ava. “Is it real or is it a fairy tale? A utopia created by Hollywood to give their viewers a false sense of hope in the reality of a broken world? And so, I said to myself: I believe in happy endings.”

“After interviewing these women, I realised that their stories impacted me way more than I expected them to,” admits Ava. “It gave me a glimpse of the true reality of living out your life as a believing mother. The reality that loving and being obedient to God could mean going to a developing country or a high-security risk country closed off to the gospel, downsizing your comfort level or just doing the things that seem like the hardest thing to do in your life, all because God said to do it.”
