Can two arch-enemies reconcile? One man found they can if someone will demonstrate grace, mercy, and faith.
Rescue the Captors II follows on the heels of Russell’s first book, Rescue the Captors I which was written to his captors while they held him hostage for five months in the jungle of Columbia. Who feels like showing love to angry guerrillas holding him hostage, threatening his life, and demanding magnificent sums of money? Russell did just that as God showed him that he was actually no better than those thugs. He needed to offer them the same Hope Christ would have.
Showing love during a hostile hostage situation threw open doors of ministry to rebel Colombian guerrillas and paramilitary. Russell's missionary work persuaded these opposing forces to reconcile their differences, forgive one another, and resolve to let past differences go - resulting in one group even providing material relief to their long-time enemies!
