Testimonials

“What a story of human endurance, perseverance and survival. It is a 20th century epic of man’s inhumanity to man and God’s hand in the life of a courageous family. It must become a movie.”V. MacBaldwin


“Thank you for sharing the story of your family. It is a treasure that will be required reading for my children. The darkness, sorrow, and pain of evil serves to contrast God’s love, grace and freedom. The strength and dignity of your parents is an inspiration. You have honored them and our Lord. Thank you again for giving of yourself in this way”.Pastor Tim McDaniel


“I am delighted you wrote the story. It needs to be told before the Soviet regime is totally forgotten by the younger generations. May your work endure through the ages.” Douglas Duggan


“Just finished reading the last chapter of your book again. What I like about your book, is that it makes me value my American freedom. I have a new hero to respect now, his name is Jacob Kurdsjuk.” Craig N. Holland


“I have just completed your book and know that I can never fully express my admiration and also my sadness when I read the saga of a little boy and his indomitable parents overcoming endless obstacles, traversing a continent and an ocean to find peace and freedom. My mind feels overwhelmed that humans can treat each other with such brutality. That you witnessed this brutality as a child hurts my heart and I feel gratitude that my own babies did not suffer this. You have told the story. You have been a witness. I hope many people will read it and feel as I do. I will never forget.”
Maria Marshal


One could tell from their questions and responses to you after your talk at the Highland School today, the students and faculty were enthralled with you and your story.

What a wonderful gift of knowledge you instilled in them. I am sure that from their demonstrated interest it will be a lasting and vital impression which they will carry and remember for years to come. Many thanks to you from me, my grand-daughter and school staff.

It always helps to get information from a person who has been there. You may never know the extent of the good you are doing. I am convinced it is substantial.
