FEATURED MISSIONARY SPEAKER RUSSELL STENDAL

Russell Stendal

Russell Stendal, a former hostage of Colombian rebels, is a lifelong missionary to that same group in the jungles of Colombia.  He is an influential friend to military and government leaders in Colombia, Cuba, Mexico, Venezuela, and the United States.  Russell's ministry shares the gospel via twelve radio stations, hundreds of thousands of Bibles, books, and movies distributed through airplane parachute drops, and numerous speaking engagements for groups of leaders, prisoners and individuals.  Russell goes wherever the Lord leads, whether it is to speak with a president or to go deep into the jungle to help an individual in trouble.  He has witnessed thousands commit their lives to Christ.
