Every Monday I share a devotion, vlog, or article by one of my favorite writers, speakers, or ministers. Dan Baumann in a missionary with Youth With A Mission (YWAM). He currently spends half of the year teaching in YWAM, churches, and universities, challenging and encouraging people to run after and fall in love with Jesus. The rest of the year he works with the Discipleship Training School (DTS) in Kona, Hawaii.
After volunteering in an Afganistan eye hospital for 9 year, in 1997 Dan went on a two week missionary trip to Iran. Shortly after arriving, he was attested on false charges and two death sentences were placed on his life. He was miraculously released after 9 weeks in the prison, and has since written the book, Imprisoned in Iran
The clip below is a snapshot of his time in prison and the transforming power of love!
Sometimes… in the deep crevices of my heart…I believe that certain people are beyond redemption. This clip challenged those deep seeded beliefs. How courageous to chose love instead of hate!
