A friend of mine is trapped in Afghanistan at present, a couple of hundred miles from the airport in Kabul. He can’t get there from where he is. His only way out of the country is to reach one of its borders, on foot or by vehicle, through Taliban roadblocks and patrols looking for Westerners. He’s not very confident that he’ll make it out. (Understatement.)
Needless to say, this is bothering me more than somewhat. I’m just not up to blogging this morning, even a Saturday Snippet.
Please say a prayer for everyone trapped in Afghanistan at present, particularly families; and pray that they may find a way out before it’s too late. Some have already died, or worse (if you count your children being kidnapped by extremists and disappearing without trace as worse). More will do so in the days and weeks ahead. They aren’t only Americans, either. There are citizens from twenty or more nations there right now. Few of their home countries are making any attempt to get them out.
Give thanks to God that you’re not there right now.
