South Korean Government Asks Church to Pay For Hostage Rescue

by Dr. D ~ October 15th, 2007

The government of South Korea has asked the church which sponsored and sent the 23 volunteer workers to Afghanistan, which later became hostages of the Taliban, to pay for the expenses of their rescue. According to Yonhap news agency, the costs included air fares, accommodation, recovery of bodies and other expenses involved in the rescue of the hostages, which amounted to $65,300.

The Saemmul Church has agreed with the request. Since the hostage ordeal, mission groups in S. Korea have discussed the hostage situation and made changes in their programs to give better support and safety for their people.             *Top

    Hey hows it goin? I really enjoy reading your writing!
    It explains everything very clear. I think the people who have to pay that over $60 thousand dollars should pray about it and see what they should really do, instead of making the choice they think they should do, or what the people/government think they should do.
    You should come visit my blog at http://allaboutpublicprayer.blogspot.com/
    and let me know what you think, it would mean a lot.
    Great job on your blog, keep it up :]
