In Northern Afghanistan, ten Christian aid workers were killed on August 5. They had spent three weeks giving medical care to villagers and had stopped for rest in Sharrun Valley, when they were ambushed and murdered. The Taliban (Islamic terrorist group) has claimed responsibility for the murders. Local police, on the other hand, believe the group was attacked and killed by criminals from the area.
I'm sure that prayer would be appreciated for the families of the six Americans, one Briton, one German and two Afghans aid workers who lost their lives. Consider Jesus' promise as you think of the aid workers, "Whoever finds his life will lose it, and whoever loses his life for my sake will find it."
