In July, 2012, I posted reports from India about a missionary named Ponnachan George who was kidnapped, then miraculously freed. You can read the original post here. Now, Gospel for Asia has posted an interview with Ponnachan George about his ordeal. His story is humbling and encouraging. His honesty about his fears and his feelings is inspiring. See the interview here: http://www.gfa.org/resource/detail/kidnapped-then-freed-missionary-interview/.
Over one million people have been impacted, and over one hundred have been killed by the worst flooding of the Jamuna River in Bangladesh in sixty years. Please pray. Most of those affected were living at poverty level before the flooding, and most cannot afford to rebuild. Read their story, and how you can pray, at http://www.mnnonline.org/article/17755.
