Pastor Bae Hyun-kyu

Just received from a reader

On behaf of, I am asking the Korean Community to remeber the death of Pastor Bae Hyun-Kyu who was killed on his 42nd birthday on Wednesday 25th July by the Taliban militia in Central Afghanistan. Also, let us remember the 22 remaining hostage in Ghazni, who were due to be executed on Saturday. The Taliban have delayed the time of their execution, but we do not have minutes but only seconds to release these hostages.


This is an urgent appeal to the Taliban to release the hostages unharmed. Thanking you in advance for supporting this petition. Rosa Manson

One thought on “Pastor Bae Hyun-kyu

  1. Dear Praying saints,

    Greetings in the blessed name of our Lord and saviour Jesus Chirst.

    I am a Indian Native missionary working among ” Good Samaritan Baptist Ministries(GSBM),” in India. I have been working since 18 years and so far we have 15 churches in the rural areas of challapalli, A.P,India. Lord is blessing all our efforts and adding souls daily to the local churches. I have now 10 co workers working along with me in the areas. I trained them personally and send them to their own people. Here the church is very poor, can not support their pastors. So all the pastors look to the Lord for their daily bread. There are times we go to bed with single meal a day. But our Lord is faithful in supplying the needs. I was in fasting prayers and thinking how can I raise prayer support for our work in India. I got this idea to surf the web to get prayer groups. I request you to pray for the work among sora tribal group people who are animists and do animal sacrifices to worship their hill spirits. Now thousands are following Christ. Lord is doing wonders in drawing people to his fold. I need your prayer support only. When you pray, Lord will open the doors to support our village pastors. I am P.Devadanam Married and blessed with two children. We
    have many needs in the field which only be met by our Lord.

    Need a mission vehicle to mobilize teams to reach the unreached. I need your fervent prayer support. Lord was faithful in all the past years in supplying all
    our needs. I do not know why I am writing this mail but I am sure Lord needs you to stand with us in prayer in this critical hour. I do believe in the
    intercessory prayer. As you pray the heavens will be opened. Our mission is going through financial crises our Ministries. Praise God for we lack nothing. Thank you for praying for us. If you pray for us please let us know.

    GSBM Ministries,
    Challapalli-521 126,
