If you haven’t heard of Louis Zamperini, he has a story worth hearing about. He was an Olympic athlete, a World War II veteran, a prisoner of war in Japan, and a man who came to know Jesus Christ a few years after the war ended. He went on to devote much of his life to spreading the story of reconciliation in Christ–even returning to Japan and sharing the gospel with some who mistreated him greatly during the years of his capture. There has been an outstanding biography written about him and a forthcoming movie on his life. Louis Zamperini died today, one day before Independence Day! His faith has been made sight! He has finished his race and fought a good fight!
