Nik continues his journey through Eastern Europe by recalling the story of a pastor whose father was held in prison. Nik is challenged by this pastor as he retells the story of visiting his father at a labor camp. However, Nik is most challenged after two days of interviews as the pastor talks about the joy he experienced through persecution.
Nik continues his travels through the former Soviet Union to speak with believers who have gone through persecution. He is encountered by stories of fathers preparing their families before they are sent to prison and families who are willing to starve to death for the cross. Nik then travels to a country where he can find no persecution. He then searches to discover the reason.
