They dropped their guns

 

 

A trip through the jungles of Thailand brought four Christian women face-to-face with death. As they made their way through the dense foliage to follow up on some new converts, they were ambushed at gun point by three communist rebels. When the men found that the women had no money, they angrily told them they were going to kill them.

The women pleaded with their captors not to shoot, but the men were adamant. Then one of the workers asked them if they could tell them about God's love before they were shot. Surprisingly, the gunmen agreed! So Kleun Anuyet explained that Jesus had died on the cross because He loved them.

The men did an astonishing thing -- they dropped their guns, and tears began to flow. The ringleader said, "If Jesus has that much love, then I want it too." Soon all three accepted Christ as Savior. Today they are serving God as full-time Christian workers. -- Send Magazine
