Dying Out Loud: The Story of a Silk Road Nomad
by Shawn Smucker

On a warm, summer day in 1967, God spoke to a five-year-old boy named Stan while he sat quietly in his grandfather’s church in El Cajon, California. But moments of childhood clarity quickly faded, and it took over twenty-five years for Stan to remember what God had told him and to embark on the greatest adventure of his life.

Dying Out Loud is the story of Stan, his wife, Ann, their children Elle and Stanley, and their dedication to following God no matter what the cost. They traded the comforts of suburban southern California for the crowded cobblestone streets of Istanbul. They explored the border regions of Turkey that snake along Iran, Iraq, and Syria. They prayed with nomadic tribes people in the Triangle of Terror, and they brought the light of the gospel to those living in the Dark Canyon.

But none of those adventures would compare to where God led them next: a journey of visions, revelations, and sorrow. A journey into stage-four colon cancer, and a journey that beckoned them to walk the shrouded path through the Valley of the Shadow of Death. Yet even there they discovered peace, grace, and a new hope for the lost around them.
