Believing in what we can't see can be tough. Whit warns the Mulligan family their farm is in danger of flooding if the nearby levee breaks because of the increased rainfall. The next morning, Nick confesses that because of Mike's example, he now understands God's love better and desires to know more.
Brink Chetley, the O.T. Action News anchor, has a breaking story from 1089 B.C. The Ammonites have declared war on Israel to get back land they believe Israel stole from them when they came out of Egypt.
Before the battle, Jephthah vows that if God delivers Ammon to him, he will sacrifice the first thing out of his house upon his return as a burnt offering. Jephthah wins the war and kills the King of Ammon. He returns to his home in Mitzpah where his only daughter Adena runs out to meet him. Jephthah is heartbroken, but realizes he must keep his vow. Adena asks to go to the mountains for two months with friends to mourn the fact that she'll never marry. Eugene Meltsner, the Middle East expert, explains that Jephthah's vow could be interpreted that he would dedicate her to the Lord for life instead of actually offering her as a burnt offering (since human sacrifice was forbidden).
