Hi, my name is Dan. When I landed in Portland, Oregon at the age of sixteen with a one-way ticket from Düsseldorf, Germany, life changed in an instant. The family who committed to picking me up and hosting me did not show up at the airport. I had to learn to rely on God for my survival as returning to Germany was not an acceptable option. Redeem The Dream is a story of the years to follow. It is a testimony to God's faithfulness in every circumstance. He will work all things out for the good of those who love him. Regardless of where you may find yourself in life, this book will encourage you to process your journey, move forward with hope, and believe in your calling. Questions for personal reflection at the end of each chapter are designed to assist you in connecting the dots of your own story. There is always hope!
