July 16, 2012
CBN News has a wonderful video report which shares an answer to prayer. I hope this short video encourages you and reminds you how much the Lord loves you and answers prayer.Here's part of the blog post CBN posted today. Two Americans, including a Boston pastor, that were taken hostage in Egypt last week were released Monday, according to an Egyptian official. Rev. Michel Louis, pastor of the Eglise de Dieu de la Pentecote, and church member Lissa Alphonse were on a Holy Land tour Friday when they were kidnapped by an Egyptian Bedouin on a Sinai road. Bedouin Jirmy Abu-Masuh hoped to secure the freedom of his uncle, who was in prison for failing to pay a bribe to police. Egyptian officials, however, refused to bend to his demands. Finally, after three days of negotiations, Abu-Masuh released the prisoners to security officials near the northern Sinai city of el-Arish. Please see the full story here.
