Item description for My Journey to Paradise by Heng L. Lim...
Overview This is the first-hand story of a Cambodian boy who found himself caught in the crossfire of civil war and then under the cruel oppression of the Khmer Rouge Communist regime. Enduring what is described in this book should have made him an emotional cripple. But God had other plans. He survived the Khmer Rouge holocaust, and when presented with an opportunity to go to America, he did so. He then took advantage of America's educational opportunities and studied to become a dentist. After becoming a Christian, the hatred and bitterness he felt toward those who destroyed many of his relatives and friends turned to forgiveness. Where once he lived for revenge, he now lives to bring healing to others and to share the love of God. This book tells about what happens when men live without God. It also shows the providence of God in saving someone in great danger. It shows the power of the Gospel to change hate into love. It shows how the freedoms and opportunities available in America can equip a person to become a constructive citizen if he works hard to make his dreams a reality. This is a book of hope!

Incredible, Inspiring Survival Story Nov 2, 2006
Heng Lim's growing up in the midst of famine and unbelievable terror from the Communists who overran Cambodia in the 1970s is a gripping tale of coping and hoping. Throughout those horrible years, when their lives were threatened by force or by hunger, the family consistently carved a next step into their daily routine. In their desparate attempt to stay alive, to find food, to get to freedom, Heng and his mom and brothers walked through mine-laden jungles, slipped past cruel guards who would have shot them on sight and took their lives in jeopardy to save themselves and kin. Heng's prayers may have been to an unknown god or gods in the beginning, but the One True God carried him through that hell and infused him with hope for his future. I am touched by his faith, renewed by his story and heartened by his successes in the land of plenty.
