African Tragedy Survivor Brings Message Of Hope
Twin Falls, Idaho ( KMVT-TV / KTWT-TV ) A man who was one of the almost four thousand Lost Boys of Sudan brought his message to Twin Falls today.
John Dau was 12 or 13 years old when his African village was attacked. The huts were burned down, children were abducted, girls and women were raped, and young men were killed.
The immigrant policy program helped bring him and the other children to America, where they began new lives of hope.
He says the good news is that many of your problems will end.
Dau says, "Do not give up. Because if you give up, you're going to miss it. It may end in the next step. If you just give up here, just make another step. In anything in your life, make a step through it, and you might come out of it."
You can hear his story first hand beginning at 7:00 p.m. tonight. This free lecture will be held in the College of Southern Idaho Fine Arts Auditorium.
Dau's story is told in the book and the documentary film "God Grew Tired of Us."
