He is the founder and president of ChinaAid, an organisation founded in the United States of America which exists to expose human rights abuses in China and promote truth, justice and freedom. Bob was born and raised in mainland China and was a student leader during the Tiananmen Square demonstrations for freedom and democracy in 1989. In 1997, Bob and his wife fled to the US as religious refugees and subsequently founded ChinaAid.

Petr Jasek is a Czech missionary who was imprisoned in Sudan for 14 months and tortured by Islamic State extremists. Petr was only meant to spend 4 days in Sudan but spent 445 days there moving across five different prisons. Throughout the process, his faith was strengthened and he led many people to the Lord. Petr has since shared his story and the supernatural peace he encountered while facing intense persecution.

Dr Daniel Shayesteh was a teacher of Islamic philosophy, a member of the Iranian Revolutionary Army and a leading Muslim fundamentalist in the 1970’s, closely supporting Ayatollah Khomeini. After falling out of favour with Khomeini’s political group in Iran, he escaped to Turkey where he began his journey to faith in Christ. He is now a Christian evangelist and established the organisation Exodus from Darkness in 2000 to facilitate his ministry to Western churches and immigrants from the Middle East.
