The flashbacks Kory has show war at it's ugliest but also show another side of the people who inhabit the countries where she went. Sean is also a very strong character who wants to keep Kory safe. He does all he can to make sure she will be alright when the traumatic time is over. Each of them come to faith from different angles. Sean know's that God is who helps him through his days.
