At age nineteen, John Delaney was a battle-hardened, highly trained member of the elite South African Parachute Battalion, who had fought bush wars throughout Namibia and Angola. For several years of active duty, his primary goal was to shoot the enemy before they could shoot him. And then, as quickly as he had been called up, he was done. A daredevil living for kicks, it took a narrow escape from a terrorist bomb and a night of sheer boredom for John to realize that he did not want to die. Today John knows the power of God. He is truly alive, a soldier for his faith, working with AIDS victims, street children, and the poor.
