    Two days ago, three of the family of one of my pastor friends were kidnapped for ransom by one of the cartels in Mexico. They were his son, brother and nephew. Saturday night we received word that they had been freed, but this is not true. Please pray for their protection and release. This is really close to home as it concerns one of our precious families and friends in our ministry.

    Update

    On Friday 3 members of one of our México churches in Ciudad Mante were kidnapped. It was the brother, nephew, and son of our current president of the BBFI of México Moisés Salazar. On Saturday the kidnappers contacted him and demanded a ransom. He raised as much money as he could and was told to drive towards another city. Since early Saturday evening he has been gone. The kidnappers contacted the family and told them that all 4 were safe and that they would be released at daylight on Sunday. It's now Monday and there has been no sign of them. We are asking you to pray for this sad and discouraging situation. Only God can help them now. Will you join us as we cry out to our Creator so that He will manifest His great power and glory? Thanks for your support.

    Thank the Lord!! I just received an e-mail that our pastor, his son, brother and nephew have been released. At the present we do not have all the details, but they were liberated by the army and are being debriefed. They should be back home shortly. Thank you for praying. Now we can start praising Him for answered prayer - Jer 33:3. God bless you.
