This is Priority One for Prayer!
There are reports on the internet that a rescue mission may be under way Right Now to free the South Korean Christians taken hostage by the Taliban in Afganistan. The deadline set by the terrorists for the release of Taliban prisoners has passed; the Taliban threaten to kill the hostages if their demands are not met. The have already killed two male hostages. Here are some websites that have followed the situation: http://eugenecho.wordpress.com/ , http://tentmakersbytrade.com/ and http://muddlingtowardmaturity.typepad.com/ . The Christian blogosphere covers many subjects and we willingly enter into debate over subjects of considerably less importance. As as some of the above mentioned sites point out, we have been silent on the subject, our focus has been on other things. We need to ask forgiveness for this neglect and truly suffer with the body of Christ that is under attack. When one part of the body suffers, the whole suffers.
