I'm a volunteer ESL teacher, Guideposts subscriber, and I thought this was an amazing story of friendship and courage. I thought of it tonight after hearing about Afghani soldiers currently being trained in our state (Massachusetts), found the magazine, and read the story again. It's a harrowing tale with a happy ending, and I'll pray that the extended family of Mr. Shinwari find their way here.

May God bless you, Matt, for what you are doing. That is certainly love in action. Hope our government honors their commitment to assist and rescue those, like Janis, who risked everything to assist our efforts in Afghanistan. Unfortunately, we did not do that in Vietnam, and many thousands of Vietnamese who assisted our efforts were left in country to suffer or die at the hands of the communists.
