Could you forgive the people who killed your family? [Video]

Just how would you react if a powerful gang, (in a foreign country) threatened you and your family’s life if you didn’t “kill” for them? And when you refused, how would you react when you learned that your wife and young daughter were taken and never found?

This story, as told by Christian Science Chaplain Lydia, has a lot of twists and turns. But when the man, (trying to outrun gang members) ends up in an American prison and turns his life over to God, that’s when he changes. And that’s when the events in his life change too–for the better. And quickly too.

Once you see this video you will probably agree that with God there are no “impossible” problems that God cannot solve.

As always we invite you to feel fee to leave a comment or tell us your own story. We love hearing from you.

    You have a big heart Lidia,and your Christly love works wonders…it brigs to mind hymn 75 of the CS Hymnal: God comes with succor speedy, to those who suffer wrong; to help the poor and needy, and bid the weak be strong; He comes to break oppression, to set the captive free, to take away transgression,and rule in equity. May I give you a big hug, with Christly blessings.
