    Highly Recommend!

    Great personal detail of one individual who answered the door when the young men with the bicycles and white shirts came knocking. It details what can happen when we get to personally know a stranger and find a friend and what is possible when people of different faiths really take time to know one another. All Christians will find this a very interesting read and really get to know some admirable young men. Great for Christmas gift giving!
