Four months after their abduction, there continues to be no reliable news on the condition of the remaining six expatriate Christians kidnapped in mid-June by unknown assailants in Yemen. On June 12, nine foreigners were abducted — four German adults, three small German children, a British man and a South Korean woman — after they ventured outside the city of Sa’ada. Shortly afterwards, the bodies of Rita Stumpp (26) and Anita Gruenwald (24), German nurses in training, and Eom Young-sun (33) of South Korea were found. Still missing are German doctor Johannes (36), his wife Sabine (36), their three children Lydia (4), Anna (3) and Simon (1) and British engineer Anthony S. Their whereabouts remain unknown. Tony is married but his wife did not accompany him on this trip.
The Voice of the Martyrs is committed to continuing to pray and to encourage prayer on their behalf until we learn of their fate. If they are still alive, I am sure that they are wondering if people are still praying. I am also sure that their families still hope for their safe return and covet our prayers.
Please post a pray on their behalf on our Persecuted Church Prayer Wall and remember to pray for these hostages on a daily basis. We will be sure to update this weblog when we learn something.
