The well and the patient to anyone will certainly were called to lead people to the Lord and we might do that with friends but imagine sharing the gospel with the mortal enemy today will be hearing more from author and speaker Cory Tyndall and hostess focus Pres. and author Jim Daly John Fuller well, as we said last time Lori and her family risk their lives to help. 800 Jewish people during World War II.

As members of the Dutch Reformed Church family strongly believe all humans are made in the image of God and that belief fueled their resistance to the Nazis. Sadly, Cory is the lone survivor of her family's incarceration and Hitler's concentration camps. Her 84-year-old father died soon after they were imprisoned and her sister Betsy died a week before Cory was miraculously released. I hope you can sit back with John and I enjoy the rest of Cory story.

I gave him six or let go. This man rush recently all inpatient enemy had said I can do it and make some money and make some money. He went home with 605 stop all extant men were sentenced to death.

I myself have suffered since that I have for you and Keith is in my hot and weak health that I've said Jesus when your gifts like followers give me that same week and called to bring him a lot when I brought back. I smiled Bible but by the New Testament, especially in the ground ball.

I headed on my back that he had to be cinched. Then I saw the thing that the prisoners had hidden under difficult. I can't send chills from each, but then I thought angels today God you stood behind me and did not see me so I came with my Bible in story something to them in the Bible.

Angels ministering spirits sent you my how and angels bending so we can decide and far stronger than those flat against this and that's what I have experienced now. When I came in that position with the patient lives in a room for 200 rush mobility and pretty soon our offer nice those lies have crossed many sicknesses, but assume that we have helped us God's will come into our back to my baby message 28 and God that kills and lies July many of the people around me died.

Many died with Jesus name on their lips and that much room for Ryan, even Betsy and all that I had to endure once Betty said to McCarty, we must know from experience that the light of Jesus Christ is stronger than the deepest darkness. A week later, she died. Another weekly, I've set by men and the medical called for one of the weekly they killed all the women my age so I became a prolonged six years I have traveled over the and I bring the gospel to many people. Also behind the Iron Curtain on July always a joy when we work in this year and in the country's will may bring the every smuggler as many bridal sets week and I will never forget the first time that I came in Moscow I had a big suitcase and trust, overseeing Bibles and Christian and I saw a Christian sect suitcase I thought might when he find what is in my suitcase.

We Bibles and then I started to pretty know I like to play with an open Bible. I have a lot USA Inc. and Amaya, one called watches over his word to perform it.

Now log the Bible see my suitcase that your word now with my hand Jeremiah one I pretty much for your word in my Bible still smuggled them. Not like you. But you know I found out that does not do so much. If you pretty with an open Bible in your output as Mr. KNOW you must have a fatty Psalms" exit visa before I release and no the log and you know what I saw this Seymour that I pleaded, I saw my big suitcase night beings I saw for the first time in my life feels and the moment that I saw, they disappeared. They didn't disappear, but I couldn't see them any longer life also had visa.

Yes, everyone yes only maybe I have time I can bring it to your to your God brought it suitcase to my car but a joy to know that all of the promises of the Bible, Jesus Yi and Damon and see that this privilege that you have that you can love your enemies get off work for me.

One of the greatest lessons that I love. I will sometime in the selling of Africa with a man who was sentenced to death. The political placement for Saudi. I asked him see. Do you know about Jesus. I have Bible at home. I know that she could die and across for the sins of the whole world. Also for my scene. I was so happy that you will eat him. See you know your imprisonment and your descendents.

Yes, I can tell you all the names of those who have become the meat and cough my descendents and I hate them.

I open my Bible and I had had what he says in Matthew six when you do not forgive those who have sinned against you, your happily father Bill if you your sins just Jesus who said it, but we through. I look on John's wife and children die. I said I understand that you cannot forgive and then I told what Jesus had been in my hot bring that man had to read. If I had been to the fraud of my beloved God.

I told him little expediency some time ago and I was in Berlin and it came in mentally and that man said to me, do you know me. Suddenly I saw one of the most men said I found about Jesus as my Savior. I am broke all my sins and I from the Bible that I have for giftedness. But then I played called information that I scored one of my fatty for victims giftedness and all I saw that you were speaking here in Berlin and now I skew boom there you forgive me my cruelties and members bonefish you that moment that came up to see my hot and I thought to my dying season that's meant to be. I had my thinking from home try five thank you Jesus that you have brought into my hot call to love spinach was given to me and thank you father, you will live longer than my goodness and taken it and that moment my hot lush order of the Holy Spirit and the fruit of the spirit of love and I could see men give me your hand and I shook hands with him and I said I forgive you anything and it was as if I felt the call to love spilling through my arm when I shook hands with that man.

When I told this to that person in Africa. He send his life a message message to us. Don't hate the people who have brought me here you are on the table.

I am not able. But Jesus us is able you and I have to be there light of the world and I like to illustrate with my right know the flashlight doesn't get light broken, but I've only one that unit, I need to watch to Bethany's now D's like you are in my heart that first Beckley. That is what happened when you sent your first yes to Jesus and distinction and I have never done it. I hope you will do it tonight and you'll realize that when you say yes to Jesus for really amending the angels rejoice, while your phone is three fatty Prince. He is in God's eyes and them will receive the Rockies as I told you all the promises of the Bible are yours. The lady see.

Jesus said, I will send you know will be spent in the Bible says be filled with the spirit and I think that second message and that second Beckley, the fullness of the Holy Spirit. If you will be doing each of the work, but I could not get it in my flashlight because of the four of her legs and you notice legs repented scenes provide jealousies and fees.

I am a Christian I steal only 546. No, when Jesus shows his great love for Sheena's friend brought to him. The Lord said, I don't go to you and then he said go and sin no more. Jesus can see where he pitches fly and gets his wings and when you have brought you scenes to the Lord, to them, leaving the fullness of the Holy Spirit and the fruit of the spirit is love and and kindness and goodness in South going through your and then you are the life doing likely flashlight.
