Praying for South Korean Hostages

Diana Thomas was as an aid worker in Afghanistan when she was kidnapped by the Taliban in 2001. After three months in captivity, Diana and her fellow workers were rescued in a dramatic night time raid by US Special Forces.

The story of her capture, imprisonment and release were told in the book, Escape from Kabul.

On the 19th of July this year, 23 South Koreans from a church group were kidnapped by the Taliban while traveling from Kabul to Kandahar to work on medical and other aid projects. Two male hostages have since been executed. Among the remaining 21 hostages, 16 are women.

Diana Thomas joined me this morning on 98.5 Sonshine FM to speak about the current crisis and to call for prayer for those being held.
