Sundar Singh was preaching to hostile Buddhists in Tibet and was one day driven out of a village without food and left to bear the blistering call from 13, 000 feet. But as he prayed, the Lord spoke to him; bringing him peace and the assurance that he was not alone.
Sundar Singh was prevailed upon to go see a poor man on his death-bed and on getting there he found this man—who was ill and had suffered for many years—filled with joy and hope—even as death was lurked over his room. He was not afraid to die, for he knew that he was soon to be ushered into life everlasting!
The sun was already setting, when Sadhu Sundar Singh, who was given wrong directions by a group of Christian-hating villagers, found himself in the middle of nowhere with a river before him that he could not cross. But in his moment of despair, a man came and helped him cross over. It was only after they has crossed that he realized that he had been helped—not by a man—but by an angel of the Lord.
Sundar Singh was threatened with jail time by an officer he preached the gospel to. But rather than chicken out, Sundar made it clear that so long as he was alive, he would continue to preach Jesus, and not prison or even death will stand in his way!
He came with the intention to rob the Sadhu but he left a penitent, completely changed and born again man!
When every appeal and emotional blackmail failed to get him to change his mind about becoming a Christian, Kartar Singh was not only disowned but was stripped naked before being sent away from home by his own father. But Katar was resolute, and though he left home physically naked, he knew he was covered in God's love!
On the orders of a Lamar, Kartar Singh was put to death for preaching the gospel. But for Kartar, death was no foe to be feared, and until he breathed his last, this was his position!
