Connie, Whit, Jason, and Brian investigate a mystery involving a man's last words on a mangled videotape.

Discussion Questions

  1. How do you feel about mystery stories like this one? Were you satisfied with the way it turned out?
  2. Connie needed help running the shoe box drive, yet felt threatened when Damaris stepped in with new ideas. Have you ever found yourself in a similar situation? What happened?
  3. Do you have any dogs like Lucy in your neighborhood? How do you feel about dogs in general?
  4. We learn that Hobbs’ kindness to others was inspired by God’s grace to him. How has God's goodness motivated you? Revisit last month's key verse, Titus 3:4-8.
  5. Do you own something that’s really special to you? How would you feel if that got packed in a shoe box and mailed overseas?
  6. Hobbs went out of his way to make up for his mistakes. When is that appropriate, and when is it OK simply to accept forgiveness and move on?
  7. Until they had all the facts, several people were suspicious of Damaris. Talk about a time when you jumped to conclusions about someone or unfairly judged a person’s motives? How can we keep that from happening?
  8. What was the most valuable thing Daniel Hobbs left to the people he cared about? How would you like people to remember you?
  9. Who do you know that needs God’s perfect gift of salvation? What are some ways you could talk with that person about Jesus?
  10. Have you participated in Operation Christmas Child as a family? If so, share what you enjoyed most about that experience. If not, now would be the perfect time to make memories together as you share God's love with a needy child many miles away.
