Just an quick update on the South Korean hostages being held captive by the Taliban in Afghanistan – two women have been released to the international red cross as a “gesture of goodwill” from the Taliban today. These were the two women who were reported in ill health.
This is the 25th day of captivity. Please continue praying.

Taliban spokesman said this,

“During these negotiations, there will no threats to the other Korean hostages. We are waiting for the result of these negotiations. After the negotiations, the Taliban leadership will make a decision about these 19 Korean hostages.”

There is some response from the evangelical world,
From Baptist Press, news with a “Christian Perspective”:

Frank Page, president of the Southern Baptist Convention, issued a call days ago to prayer for the hostages.
“I call on all Southern Baptists to join in earnest prayer for the release of these mission workers,” Page said. “We all know that there is risk in speaking for the Lord. We are all aware that there is risk when one travels in foreign countries. Though they went against their government’s advice in traveling to Afghanistan, I know they went with a sense of calling from the Lord.”
