Brother Andrew (Christian Heroes: Then & Now)

51w-ch94bsl-_sx326_bo1204203200_When he became God’s smuggler, Brother Andrew was already familiar with risk. As a boy, the intrepid Andrew Van Der Bijl joined the Dutch Resistance against the Nazi occupation. As a young man, he fought eagerly in the Dutch East Indies – until the horror of war turned the adventure seeker to a life of alcohol and desperation.

Redeemed by God, the Dutchman became a daring messenger of hope, smuggling Scripture through closed borders and equipping persecuted Christians behind the Iron Curtain. Today Brother Andrew and the ministry of Open Doors continue to shine the light of Christ in the world’s darkest places.

1 thought on “Brother Andrew (Christian Heroes: Then & Now)

  1. My reason to pick Brother Andrew is because one of my dearest friends is named Andrew. Faith is his life most centered around. During many dangerous trips of smuggling Bible to those communist countries, Andrew simple exercise his faith, trusting the power of God. One of the best-known scenes is that God made the guard blind and let he passed with a pile of Bible on his passenger seat. His life is an example of following God’s guidance!
