Pray for Kidnapped Missionaries in Yemen
Would you take a moment to join us in prayer for the safety of six fellow believers who were kidnapped by suspected al-Qaeda linked terrorists in Yemen?
On June 12, a group of Christians, including 7 Germans, 1 British man and 1 South Korean were kidnapped while picnicking in the northern Yemeni province of Saada. The believers were aid workers based at al-Jumhuri hospital in northern Yemen.
Three days later, the bodies of two Germans, Rita Stumpp, 26, and Anita Gruenwald, 24 (picture at right), as well as a South Korean woman, Eom Young Sun, 33 (picture at bottom right), were found in el-Nashour, in northern Yemen.
Yemeni security officials have been searching for the other six Christians who are still missing. They are: Johannes Henschel and his wife Sabine, a German couple, and their three children - Lydia, 4, Anna, 3, and Simon, 11-months, and an unnamed British man.
Please pray for:
- Comfort and strength for the families of the three murdered believers.
- Strength and comfort for the six still missing. Ask God to give them hope and faith as they go through this ordeal.
- The success for security officials in finding the six missing believers.
- For Muslims in Yemen to open up to the gospel of Jesus Christ.
Sincerely in Christ,
