WHEAT RIDGE, Colo. -- When Justin Wren says that God told him to take a break from fighting and go to one of Africa's most dangerous war-torn nations with three other Christian missionaries, he knows how that's likely to come off.

"I hope I don't sound like a religious dude," Wren says, flashing an embarrassed grin from deep within his bushy blonde beard. "That used to be like a cuss word to me."

That was before, back when Wren was not only a non-believer, but openly hostile to religion. If you'd told him a year and a half ago that he'd be putting his MMA career on hold to travel the earth with a small band of hardcore Christians, he'd have asked you what you were smoking, and whether you could spare any. He didn't even want to attend a church service, much less rearrange his life altogether.

Are you guys serious?! The man is putting his promising career on hold to travel to some of the poorest places in the world to help people!
Yeah he's had his problems but what he's doing is inspiring.

Absolutely. There's no need for the douchebaggery.

Much respect to Justin for doing this.

I agree with this...So many people just think money is everything or prestige...Some are looking for inner peace...
