Eye of the Tempest
First person account by Lloyd Oppel of his experience together with Sam Mattix, as prisoners of the North Vietnamese during the Vietnam War. Both were newly arrived, very young, missionaries to Laos when the town where they were living was overrun by the communists. Five months of captivity followed, including 40 days of forced march, 800 kilometers from central Laos, across the mountains into Vietnam and ultimately to imprisonment in the notorious “Hanoi Hilton.”
For these two twenty-year-olds, their captivity and survival became the defining discipleship experience of their youth. The lessons that God was teaching them have lasted a lifetime.
