Fascinating details of life as a missionary
Transparency of storytellers makes this come
Prisoners of Hope
Dayna Curry and Heather Mercer
Dayna Curry and Heather Mercer are two young women whose obedience to Gods
call to serve the poorest of the poor led them to Afghanistan. Little did they
know when they arrived in Kabul that they would be imprisoned, end up in the
center of an international war on terrorism and rescued by U.S. Special Forces
from captivity under the Taliban.
In Prisoners of Hope they tell the story of their work with the
women and children of Afghanistan, their capture after they were accused of
teaching Christianity and their dramatic rescue only a few weeks after the
United States responded to 9/11.
Their heart for the disadvantaged of the worldand their obedience to the
call of Christ to spread His gospel come through loud and clear in this
autobiographical audio tape, read by Dayna and Heather. Writes President George
W. Bush: I sensed no bitterness in their voices, no fatigue, just joy. It was
an uplifting experience for me to talk to these courageous souls.
