"This gripping story is the rarest of combinations, full of both fire and grace. It is as refreshing as it is unsettling; inspiring even as it disturbs."
-Jedd Medefind, President of Christian Alliance for Orphans; Author of Becoming Home and Upended
Do you trust Me?

The words flashed across Peter DeSoto's brain, not in the form of an audible voice, but more like a question welling inside him. A question he felt God was asking.
Do you trust Me, Peter?
He looked down. "No, I don't," he said aloud.
The thought stung a bit. "But I want to."
So begins the true story of Pete and Dara DeSoto, a Southern California couple who chooses to press into their fears and walk by faith. They sell everything they own, uprooting their young family to work as missionaries in El Salvador. While Dara struggles to assimilate to her new world, Pete has few problems immersing himself in his job, making connections and planting roots in the community. Until one fateful day when his trust is tested.
A mysterious gunman stops Pete's car in the thick of the Salvadoran jungle, shooting Pete in the throat. After an intense fight to save him, complicated and heartbreaking questions emerge. Saving Pete's life is just the beginning.
A dual narrative of both a couple and a country, SHOT is about making peace with the parts of life we can't control, finding hope in the aftermath of trauma, and wrestling with the messiness of faith.
Christy Krumm Richard's clear-eyed reporting and rich storytelling will leave you convicted and awed, empowered by Pete and Dara's tale of survival and resolve.
