Prisoners of Hope: The Story of Our Captivity and Freedom in Afghanistan


Prisoners of Hope: The Story of Our Captivity and Freedom in AfghanistanPrisoners of Hope: The Story of Our Captivity and Freedom in Afghanistan by Dayna Curry
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This is a story of Dayna Curry and Heather Mercer. These two ladies traveled from the US to minister in Afghanistan. The first part of the book tells of their lives before salvation and how the Lord led them to travel overseas. The middle part of the book deatils there service and ministry in Afghanistan. The later part of the book tells of their imprisonment in Afghnistan because of their willingness to share their faith with the people of that nation. These two ladies were in Afghanistan during the "911" crisis in the United States. These two ladies endured much but were rescued by the Navy Seals. I really enjoyed reading about how these two allowed God's love to flow through their lives. If you like to read about courage or if you have interest in Afghanistan you will enjoy this book. The following quote from the book speaks for itself:

I came to see that God did not need someone with extraordinary gifts and achievements. He just needed someone who could love, share her life, and feel for others as He did. God was looking for compassion, not commendations. He was looking for faithfulness, not fame. God assured me that if I would be committed to loving and serving with a soft heart, then even if my life seemed small in the eyes of the world, before God it would be great.  ~Heather Mercer
