Not Guns But God
After a church service near the battlefront, Commander Daniel explained to us that, at the beginning of their war, he thought that their power for freedom came from their guns. "I was far from God and I trusted only in my own strength and the AK47. Then in 1997 I began to hear of the work of Frontline Fellowship. I saw the Christian flag over the military base in Maridi and I wondered what Christianity had to do with our struggle. How could a soldier be a Christian?
"But then I saw such a change in the behaviour and morale of our soldiers. It was explained to me that this was because of the chaplains Frontline Fellowship had trained. Now we had Bible readings and prayers before every operation. And I could see the results. With the Chaplains, the Bibles and the prayers came more victories and less casualties than ever before!
