Another martyr for peace

I heard the news today that a second South Korean Christian worker has been killed by the taleban in Afghanistan.

May God be gracious to those who remain, who grieve, who question and who continue to work for peace.

Pastor Bae Hyung-kyu, 42, the leader of the team was the first team member to be killed by them earlier last week, his body was repatriated to South Korea yesterday.

Shim Sung-min was aged 29, and was an IT worker, his body was found beside a road yesterday evening, local time.

The taleban are calling for the release of prisoners. I'm glad it's not me that has to make the tough decisions here, and I pray that God would give them grace and wisdom.
