South Korea: President thanks Jesus Christ for his life!

The South Korean President Kim Dae-jung was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize on December 10, 2000. At the ceremony, he publicly thanked Jesus Christ for saving his life. Once a political dissident, he was kidnapped in Japan by South Korean agents in 1973.
Just before they threw me into the water, Jesus Christ appeared to me.
"They bound me and put me in a boat. American agents were able to rescue me before they could throw me overboard," he says. "Just before they threw me into the water, Jesus Christ appeared to me. I could see him clearly, standing in front of me. I clung to him, asking him to save me. In that moment, a plane arrived to rescue me." 76-year-old Kim says that he was near death five times in his life, spent six years in jail and 40 years under house arrest. "I lived in the faith that God is always by my side, and will continue to live with that faith," he says. He was awarded the Peace Prize for his efforts towards reconciliation with Communist North Korea.
