Whither Thou Goest is the amazing story of a modern day Ruth and Boaz. How God used a background of war, disaster, and family separation to bring His two children together will touch your heart and increase your faith.

American missionary Karl Faulkner found himself stranded in Poland with war breaking out and doors to sharing the Gospel closing all around him. Such were the circumstances which forced him out of Poland into Hungary, and eventually made him return to the United States. Had Karl misinterpreted the messages he'd received directing him to witness to the Jews of Eastern Europe? His answer would come years later, when he was contacted by the Red Cross. A family that had befriended Karl in Hungary now sought refuge from the Communist regime and needed an American sponsor. They were bringing friends with them, one of which was to become Karl's wife.

Terezia Toth left behind all the world she had ever known--her relatives, church, and ability to earn a living, even her language and social customs when she and her companions arrived in the United States. Thanks to the sponsorship of two Baptist churches in Oregon, they were well provided for. But everything was different and strange. Life would be so much easier living among other refugees in California. Why was God asking her to stay behind and marry a man she did not know, who didn't even speak her language? Yet Terezia was willing to echo the words of Ruth, ""Whither thou goest, I will go..."" committing to follow her husband wherever the Lord led. It was a vow that would try her faith and take her to the brink of reason. The end result was to become a marriage built on mutual devotion and endearing love, yielding eternal fruit blossoming in the garden of Paradise.
