It has been a joy and inspiration to walk with Claudio from the very first days of his Rwandan journey, and to witness how an opportunity to use his professional expertise quickly became the catalyst for deep personal transformation. It took great courage for Claudio to take this leap of faith, during a season of life so often associated with a slower and more comfortable pace, and his obedience to God’s call has made an immeasurable and lasting difference in many lives. I am so grateful for vulnerability and clarity with which Claudio not only shares his personal story in this book, but also translates his own learning into practical applications for leaders. Whatever your context, stage of life, or experience, this book will challenge you never to settle for anything less than what God has for you, and will encourage you with what is possible when you say yes to the adventure ahead.
