Several months ago, Joey Shaw was attacked by a gang of young men. His face was sliced with a straight-razor, and he had to travel home from Southeast Asia.

Yesterday, he told the story of the attack, set it in a Biblical context, and challenged those who heard him to pour themselves out for the cause of Christ.
