Rescue the Captors

This is the true story of American bush pilot Russell Stendal, on routine business, landed his plane in a remote Colombian village. Gunfire exploded throughout the town and within minutes Russell's 142 day ordeal had begun. The Colombian cartel explained that this was a kidnapping for ransom and that he would be held until payment was made.

Held at gunpoint deep in the jungle and with little else to occupy his time, Russell got ahold of some paper and began to write. He told the story of his life and kept a record of his experience in the guerrilla camp. His “book” became a bridge to the men who held him hostage and now serves as the basis for this incredible true story of how God’s love penetrated a physical and ideological jungle.

This kindle ebook is available for free.  This is a great story whether you are a Christian or not. The goal is not to be on a best sellers list, but to show all readers that Christ isn't about the religious elite, caring instead that we accept His love and righteousness instead of our own.
