So very powerful - and a lesson for ALL of us. This moved me.
Wonderful story. We should all be as bold.
Breathtaking, true story--beautifully and simply told.
I'm wondering if your absolutely best ending might be his exquisitely powerful statement, "I choose firebrand". (Then perhaps a simple author's note, documentary-style, briefly describing how he lived and died.) Thanks so much for this supremely inspiring piece!
Touching and masterfully crafted. I especially like the 6th paragraph from the bottom.

What a testimony to the Lord was this man's life! His story is beautifully told in this entry. He sure did touch a lot of lives in just 41 years. Wow.

How inspiring! And what a reminder of how I fall short...

This is well-written and filled with the love of Christ. I really enjoyed reading it.

The simple, true stories often touch my heart more thn any others, because God truly wrote them. Thanks for sharing this one. :)
Jesus said unless we become as a little child we cannot enter the kingdom of heaven. That in itself is a bold statement. Your story illustrates so well the bold and childlike faith of a simple man who took Jesus at His word.
