Young Francis Mandewah dreamed of a better future, but saw no way out of his impoverished situation...until one day when he met a man who would change his life.

An African boy from the region made famous by the Hollywood film "BLOOD DIAMOND" is befriended by an American pilot who was employed by the diamond mining industry in Sierra Leone, to fly boxes of gems and alluvial diamonds in Sierra Leone, from Yengema to Freetown where a British Airways jet would fly the gemstones to London. This was 2 decades before the rebel war in the diamond mines and Hollywood movie "Blood Diamond" which brought attention to that war.

This American pilot miraculously met and befriended young Francis Mandewah, an impoverished Sierra Leonean boy, and gave him generous support that opened a new life of opportunity, which would eventually take Francis to dreamed destination - America.

That friendship brings great opportunities and blessings that affirm the boy's faith in a God of miracles. But the boy's journey also brings many trials and tribulations that test his courage, strength, and endurance.

The journey to America laid through the rugged landscape and terrain from West Africa to North Africa, during which Francis had many harrowing experiences, including crossing the Sahara Desert, which almost cost him his life. His challenges continued in Mali, Algeria, Tunisia, Sicily, Italy, Greece, Turkey, France, England, and finally in America.

In the end, Francis became aware that his real voice that has emerged through all his trials and tribulations is one of deep faith and gratitude for God's miracles and wonders in his life.
