When Kenyan evangelist Okongo Samson went on his first mission trip as a teenage boy he was kidnapped, tortured and raped by terrorists. But through a series of miracles he escaped.
That didn't stop him travelling the world to preach the Gospel despite being arrested and abused by his captors in 15 countries. Despite years of pain and suffering from the abuse he encountered he returned to several of these nations to personally forgive those who persecuted him. As a result many of those he forgave accepted Christ and now serve alongside him with his charity Unite4Africa.
Okongo is hoping many will follow his bold steps to reconciliation after reading his biography Abused But Not Forsaken.
