Missing person
« on: July 02, 2010, 05:25:05 PM »
My girlfriend is missing since the day before yesterday. Her parents and I are very concerned and distraught. I can't even believe this is happening. Please pray that my girlfriend will be found safe and be reunited with us.

My girlfriend has been kidnapped and is in a hostage situation. The kidnapper is apparently driving towards the border with Mexico. Pray for her safety and God's protection and a swift and good resolution to this horrible situation.

Thank you so much for all your prayers. This situation is still ongoing, unfortunately. The abductor has her in Mexico. The police will be able to get him if he crosses back into the United States. Obviously, my girlfriend's mother, father, sister, and I are all very upset. Please, continue to pray for us, for my girlfriend, for the abductor and his family. Thank you.

Thank you all so much for your prayers. The situation is almost over. The police have been able to negotiate my girlfriend's safe return to the United States. However, she is still awaiting issue of a temporary passport at the consulate in Mazatlan. She still needs prayers as does everyone else involved.

Please pray fervently for her salvation, as well, since she is not a Christian, and also that God would turn this horrible situation into something good by His grace.
