Rerouted: God’s Leading in a Reluctant Missionary’s Life

Jonah got a big fish. Janay got a rogue wave.

In Rerouted, Janay Abale describes her journey from pursuing a comfortable life in Southern California to giving it all up to live in a rural part of Northern Uganda as a missionary.

Providing an intimate window into her spiritual growth, Janay addresses topics like:

• How YOU can Discern God’s will for YOUR life

• Asking God to give you the desires of your heart

• Why surrender is the only path to genuine joy

• God’s heart for every believer

Thoughtful and encouraging, Rerouted will spur you on in your desire to surrender everything to Jesus in exchange for His unsurpassable joy.
