Seeing an opportunity, or should I say “an open door,” the author accepts it as an invitation to do something. With boldness and compassion he steps in “where angels fear to tread,” doing things that no one has ever done, and experiencing God’s miracles along the road. As the reader is drawn into each story, he will experience adventure, sympathy, excitement, tears, and laughter. In this book you will meet people, important people, like Mitsuo Fuchida and Richard Wurmbrand and Peter Dugulescu—all who greatly influenced the author’s life. But you will also meet some little-known people: some lepers and some gypsy children, a mechanic named Ray Hill, and a young couple who made a daring escape from bondage. You will read about smuggling—for God’s work—and you will experience the excitement of many adventures as this author stepped through the doors God opened.
