This is too chilling and heart wrenching... The shocking reality of what goes on outside of our comfy suburban homes in America is something we all should know. Thank you Grant for the updates as well as your heart in this matter, as I know this does hit close to home for you and Christianne in many ways.

I can’t say enough about how much we should all be praying…

For the hostages – their dependence, trust and strength in the Lord at this time. And their examples to those witnessing their faith through all of this.

For the families and friends of the hostages – that they may be comforted and brought closure to the Lord and trust in God’s Sovereign plan.

For the militia – that their hearts may be softenned and openned to the truth – mercy for their souls.

For the rest of us – that we can evaluate our lives as those of us desireing to live our entire lives for Christ in contrast with true suffering and actual martyrdum.

2Tim. 2:3 - Suffer hardship with me, as a good soldier of Christ Jesus.
