Ray Barnett, who overcame incredible obstacles in his own life before launching the world-renowned African Children’s Choir back in 1984, is on a mission to inspire the next generation of Christian pioneers through his autobiography ‘Don’t Tell Me It Can’t Be Done.’
The book tells the heart-breaking story of how as a young boy he struggled to find his way through immense poverty, family secrecy, learning difficulties and war-time suffering that gripped his life in Northern Ireland.
But it was his dramatic conversion as a young teenager that turned his life around:
“When I became a Christian at the age of 13, I was inspired by the ministry of David Livingstone. But the first time I attempted to preach I fainted. The next day I read in the Bible that with God nothing is impossible. So, I never let anything stop me for pursuing my dream to help others because I always believed God could do anything. I want to encourage people through this book that with prayer and action they can accomplish anything in their life.”
The book begins in a very tense moment in Ray’s life in 1987 when he was meeting with a notorious leader of Hezbollah while seeking to negotiate the release of hostages in Lebanon.
