Kresta in the Afternoon – December 7, 2020 – Hour 2

How I Came to Forgive the Man who Attacked My Family (Full hour)

Ray Norman spent most of his life living in far-flung corners of the globe, working on long-term development projects and living out his calling as a Christian professional. By the time he arrived in the Islamic Republic of Mauritania around the turn of the millennium, he was veteran of life as an expat, at home in countries and cultures not his own. But in 2001, the world was about to change—and so was Ray’s life. A stunning attack by an Islamic gunman left him and his daughter fighting for their lives and wondering if they should leave the country for good. Ray joins us.
