…as a Christian layman interested in peace and reconciliation. You have been a neutral intermediary between the Sudanese government and me at critical moments to convey diplomatic messages where there was a high risk of misunderstanding or miscalculation. I believe your efforts to get Sudanese high level cooperation and attention to the real issues in Darfur, without taking sides, has been a unique service which would have been very difficult for secular groups to accomplish.
Hon. Andrew NatsiosUS Special Envoy to Sudan
I was given an extraordinary inside look into the world of Jesus-based relational diplomacy that (TRAC5) advocates for, and I saw up close and personal not only that IT WORKS, but HOW it works.

I have been privileged to witness Mark D. Siljander’s pioneering efforts. Each page of “A Deadly Misunderstanding” is a testimony of Mark’s willingness to study, struggle and pay the price necessary to see Jesus’ Way of reconciliation and transformation restored to the Church and society.

Former Congressman Mark Siljander has been in Sudan for the past week to make a personal appeal for Mr. Jasek on Hardwired’s behalf, which led to his release.
It’s a great joy to me to get to know all the people who were contributing for my release from the Sudanese prison, especially to those of you (Trac5) who were traveling to Sudan in order to secure my release.

I cannot overstate the importance of Mark’s strategic efforts to defuse the activities of radical Muslims worldwide. Many are convinced that he is on the cusp of what will prove literally to be the tipping point in realigning radical terrorist enemies.
