Gene Kiepura, a retired railroad machinist, came face to face with the reality of where he stood in his faith when his 14 year old son, Jacob (Jake) was killed on a missions trip to Mexico.  As if the death of his son (who was killed along with five others) was not enough to contend with, Eugene also had to deal with corrupt and greedy local authorities and US Embassy staff.

Yet, his greatest challenge of all was his faith in God. Believers, who expected him to be a pillar of great strength and a prime example seemed to undermine or even shorten the grieving process.  Gene, along with his wife (41 years of marriage to his highschool sweetheart) Jan, struggled through the tragedy together, along with their other children.

Gene's transparency about his faith and his struggles will cause one to stand back and look hard at their own faith.  Listen to how God intervened, strengthening Gene in such unexpected and amazing ways that only God alone is glorified!
