“There is really no Iron Curtain for the brave.” — Brother Andrew
Andrew van der Bijl, also known as Brother Andrew or “God’s Smuggler,” spent his entire life ministering the gospel to hard-to-reach people in countries where being a Christian often meant persecution or even death. On September 27, Brother Andrew died and went home to be with the Lord at the age of 94.
In light of his passing, we thought this would be a good time to go deep into our archives and share the interview Andrew did with Charles Morris in 2004. For many years, Andrew took the Good News into the Soviet Union, China, and Czechoslovakia — this interview takes place long after that when he turned his attention to the Middle East and North Africa.
It’s our prayer that this conversation will minister to you and inspire you to be a bold ambassador for Christ with your own life.
