    Rarely do you meet a family who took the truly risky decision to live out their Christian faith as best they could in the least promising of circumstances - a slum in Bangkok. What was the cost (and joy) and at the end, how could they possibly feel so alive when they and so many around them had suffered so much? How could hope thrive? How can a love for Manchester United help save a neighbourhood? How can a bullet in the leg build character, challenge the system and humble mere onlookers? How can a forgotten slum dweller be transformed into an international culinary inspiration and be empowered by God's love expressed through pertinent help? How can failure be transformed into learning? How can the story of the Good Samaritan translated to today change not only the neighbourhood but the messengers? Which of their experiences do more than a decade of service help us to engage meaningfully so that future adventurers and new faith-community leaders can emerge from within forgotten and marginalised communities where merely to exist one more day was the pinnacle of achievement? Why is it most important to try than to succeed every time? Where is God in all the mess? Read this book, expect raw experience and find your answers. Then answer this question: when your neighbour is in need, will you look on and pass by, or will you engage?
