"She'd give the twelve apostles a run for their money."
This was spoken in reference to the mother of Shawn and Brian Chrisagis, who absolutely refused to accept that her twin boys, born three months premature, and deathly allergic to even small amounts of sunlight, would not be given every opportunity to survive.
The Brothers Chrisagis did indeed survive their childhood, which was lived in constant fear of death. Family members made tremendous sacrifices so that they could be properly cared for.
Surviving this ordeal gave Brian and Shawn confidence and faith in God and His Word that inspires thousands through their entertainment-based ministry.
As they say, "Without the brokenness, you can't become like Christ."
Their ministry has delighted audiences all over the world, and has opened doors to minister to heavyweights in the entertainment industry. Their message to us is that you don't need to be a megastar to be a witness for Jesus. You just need faith through your trials and brokenness to move others to Him.
