God will often call us to do something or go somewhere that is totally unlike anything anyone else is doing. Think of Noah's story in Genesis 6 - 8.
God's ways aren't our ways. He doesn't think like us. He sees a much bigger picture, past, present and future and the entire population at once.
If you know God is telling you to go somewhere or do something that seems a bit crazy, do it. Follow Him. Go. Do. Trust Him and go wherever He calls you to go.
