Brother Andrew

I was a teenager when I first read God’s Smuggler by Brother Andrew, and it sparked a fire in me to pursue Jesus on a whole new level. His stories awakened a love for the nations, and eventually helped me launch a ministry. His testimony deeply marked me to live my life fully surrendered to the Lord. – Sarah from

Most of us have read God’s Smuggler by Brother Andrew.  In the book, he gives an account of when he was a young man who risked his life to smuggle Bibles through the borders of closed nations—such an inspiring book, full of Holy Spirit intervention and miraculous events.  Brother Andrew, one of the all-time heroes of faith, recently passed from this life to eternity.  Anne van der Bijl, a Dutch evangelical known to Christians worldwide as Brother Andrew, died at 94 on September 27, 2022.  He has inspired so many.  May his legacy continue to live on!
