From the oppression and terror of the killing fields in Cambodia, this
is the story of how one man's conversion led to a rebirth of faith that brought
hope to a nation. Commissioned by Communists to spy on a Christian evangelistic
crusade, Barnabas Mam instead discovered Jesus and came to faith in Him. After
spending four years in prison camps at the hands of the Khmer Rouge Barnabas emerged
as one of only 200 surviving Christians in all of Cambodia. God raised him up to became
the foremost evangelist and church planter in a land broken by genocide. An inspiring
story on a personal, church, and national level, this is more than a narrative--it's
a blueprint for success for church growth of the most powerful kind.

BARNABAS MAM has been AFCI's Regional Director for Asia since 2007 and is one of only 200 Christians to survive the Killing Fields of Pol Pot. He joined the Communist party as a teenager and was converted to Christ while spying on a Christian evangelistic meeting in the early 1970's. He was later arrested and sent to the Killing Fields where he spent four years in captivity. After his release Barnabas was forced to flee the country where he spent another eight years in a refugee camp in Thailand where he began the ministry of church-planting. After returning to Cambodia, Barnabas helped rebuild the church in his native land, and over 400 churches have been planted since 1998.
