Dayna Curry and Heather Mercer were arrested in Afghanistan by the ruling Taliban government for teaching people about Jesus. In the midst of their chilling trial, the events of September 11, 2001, led to the international war against terrorism, with the Taliban a primary target. While many feared they could not survive in the midst of war, many more prayed for their safe return. In November, those prayers were answered.In Prisoners of Hope, Dayna and Heather tell the story of their work in Afghanistan; their love for the people they served; their arrest, trial, and imprisonment; and their heroic rescue by U.S. Special Forces.But the book goes beyond the headlines to examine how two middle-class American women decided to leave the comforts of home in exchange for the opportunity to serve the downtrodden -- and how their faith sustained them through the terrifying events that followed.It's a magnificent story of ordinary women caught in extraordinary circumstances as a result of their commitment to God. And it will inspire countless readers who seek a purpose greater than themselves.
