Did you remember that Madiba died a year ago this week? Four other South Africans died this week. Pierre Korkie, an educator teaching in Yemen was held hostage by Al Quada, before being killed (http://bit.ly/12wuD59).

The others, Werner and Hannelie Groenewald, and their children, Jean-Pierre (17) and Rode (15) lived in Afghanistan for 12 years, trying to show God’s love to the war-weary people. Three Taliban members broke into their house and killed them – they suspected them of being Christian missionaries (http://bit.ly/1w0lfBw). Hannelie survived.

Pray for everyone who has been directly affected by these deaths – and all those around the world who suffer because they follow Jesus (http://bit.ly/1s7FdX4).
