Praise God! I heard news yesterday that the 8 aid workers were rescued from Afghanistan. I am so amazed at how God answers prayers. To be frank, I thought there was no hope for them once the war began, but I am amazed at how this has all turned out.

Here is a press release from Antioch Community Church in Waco, TX where the two American missionaries were from. (Antioch is an incredible church that has sent dozens of long-term missionaries all over the world, and has been a major partner with my home church at Hope Chapel and at Hope in the City in Austin, TX.)

Also, here is a story from that tells about the incredible prayer efforts that were taking place at Antioch. Reading this and knowing the folks at Antioch, I am convinced that it was God’s hand that saved the aid workers.
