Cranmer was afraid of death but showed courage. George Wishart was in prison but preached Jesus. James Chalmers brought the bible to cannibals despite the danger. Dietrich Bonhoffer feared death but would not be silent. Nate Saint flew into danger but knew it was worth it. Ivan Moiseyev obeyed the army but put God first.
