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
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

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.
