DEDICATION TO THE STAINES FAMILY


Randy Alcorn wrote a novel about persecution of Christians in China, entitled Safely Home. This is his dedication for the book. "TO GRAHAM STAINES, who left his home in Australia to serve lepers in India for thirty-four years. TO PHILIP STAINES (age ten) and TIMOTHY STAINES (age six), who at half past midnight on January 23, 1999, as their father held his arms around them, were burned to death by a mob in India, murdered because of whom they knew and served. TO GLADYS STAINES, who continues to minister to lepers and who said to all India, "I am not bitter or angry. I have one great desire: that each citizen of this country should establish a personal relationship with Jesus Christ, who gave his life for their sins." To ESTHER STAINES, Graham and Gladys' daughter (then age thirteen), who said, "I praise the Lord that he found my father worthy to die for him."
