I loved your description of the MCs inner conflict and his resolve with the truth. This had me in suspense the whole time. Great Job! Keep up the excellent work.

This literally leaves me breathless. The suspense, the passion, the growth and the unexpected but fantastic ending is so worth the reading!

Loving you in through and because of Jesus, the Christ . . .

Congratulations!

Wing His Words
Your MC and his childhood friend became so real to me. Somehow though in your fantastic story telling and the MC wondering which was God's accent, I forgot that he had explosives strapped to his body and I was thinking if he had come up with the right answer all would be well. But he did give his live to the One true God so all did end well. Too bad his mother couldn't know, but maybe she will find Isa too. However, did you come up with this story? It was exciting and gripping from beginning to end. But more important it held biblical truth. Thanks you for this wonderful piece. I am so glad this one first place in your level. Congratulations!
I was pretty sure you had a second place over all win too, but I wanted to double check... Fabulous, I am happy for you. This really was an extraordinary piece!

Congratulations Dave I really enjoyed reading your story.
Thank you for glorifying God with your true, honest, just, pure, lovely, good, virtuous and praiseworthy winning entry! God bless you.

KJV Hebrews 10:26 "For if we sin wilfully after that we have received the knowledge of the truth, there remaineth no more sacrifice for sins, 27 But a certain fearful looking for of judgment and fiery indignation, which shall devour the adversaries. 28 He that despised Moses' law died without mercy under two or three witnesses: 29 Of how much sorer punishment, suppose ye, shall he be thought worthy, who hath trodden under foot the Son of God, and hath counted the blood of the covenant, wherewith he was sanctified, an unholy thing, and hath done despite unto the Spirit of grace? 30 For we know him that hath said, Vengeance belongeth unto me, I will recompense, saith the Lord. And again, The Lord shall judge his people. 31 It is a fearful thing to fall into the hands of the living God."

Congratulations on your win. This is a wonderful story. I was sad that the man had to die, but how he did it was beautiful and Jesus will be waiting for him. Great job.

Congratulations. you capture the inner jihad of those who live in the lands where Isa and Allah engage in spiritual conflict. Knowing friends from this area made this come alive.
This fast-paced story took me deep into the workings of minds I don't begin to understand. Thankfully, God reaches out to them, as in your story. What a gripping piece.
Congratulations on your EC.
I love the comparison. This is a well deserved second place EC. Congratulations!
