Kim Phuc on her Conversion

Kim Phuc, the subject of the photograph that came to symbolize the atrocities of the Vietnam war, (I'm not putting the picture on the post but you can find it by clicking here) was recently invited to take part in the NPR "This I Believe" program; a show which ranges across the panoply of american worldviews.

In her few minute testimonial Phuc gives us a typical evangelical conversion narrative including such themes as Jesus Christ being "her personal savior" and extending forgiveness to both the Vietnamese government--who wanted to turn her into a symbol of the state--and the soldiers who dropped the napalm.

To catch the poignancy and power of what God did in her life I recommend listening to it while looking at the picture. To listen click here.
