Title: Blind Missionary Wins Terrorists to Christ

2.) Blind Missionary Wins Terrorists to Christ

    Brother Alex was traveling with 25 of his coworkers when their bus was pulled over by guerrilla terrorists in Colombia. All the passengers were lined up on the side of the road and ordered to kneel.

    Alex, believing his life was about to end began to sing praises to God. An annoyed terrorist hit him in the head with the butt of his rifle. The attackers then stood in front of the hostages and opened fire with their automatic rifles. When the bullets were spent, they took out their machetes.

    A number of bullets ripped through Alex's face, but he did not loose consciousness. He cried out to the terrorists, "Jesus loves you! Jesus loves you!" until a swinging rifle caught his jaw leaving him face down in a pool of his own blood.

    Now blind, Alex is the sole survivor of the attack and many of those responsible are currently incarcerated at Medellin's Bella Vista prison. But the story doesn't end here. Alex has since joined a prison ministry at the same prison of his attackers and has already won some of them to Christ. He recently told The Voice of the Martyrs, "I feel love and compassion for these men because the devil has locked them up in a prison - their own prison - and doesn't want to let them go. I can be an instrument of freedom for them."
