Korean hostages are finally released!!!

Original post: Korean hostages are finally released!!!

Finally after a long time, the Korean Hostages are released! This is an article I copied from Florence and actually it originates from Timothy Lee in Friendster. Thanks to two of you!

By Cheon Jong-woo

SEOUL (Reuters) - Relatives cheered and hugged each other after being told on Tuesday that 19 South Korean hostages held in Afghanistan by Taliban insurgents for nearly six weeks would be released.

They also apologised to the nation, in a statement broadcast across South Korea, for the trouble their church caused by sending the mostly inexperienced Christian volunteers into one of the world’s most dangerous areas.

Relatives have been holding vigil at the Saemmul Church, outside Seoul, since the hostages - most of them women - were seized in the Afghan province of Ghazni.

“The families are rejoicing at the news. They are busy calling other family members and friends at the moment to pass on the news,” Bang Yong- kyun, pastor at Saemmul Church, told Reuters.

“We knew the negotiation process was turning favourable, but we never thought it would happen so soon,” a
spokesman for the hostage families, Cha Sung-min, told reporters.

“When the announcement came out, there was a commotion in the room as everyone hugged each other.”

Asked what they will do when their loved one finally come home, he replied:

“We will do what we weren’t able to do during the incident. We found out that the everyday routines were the most precious moments. Eating breakfast together or having slices of fruit after dinner.

“Those insignificant things are what we treasure the most.”

Two male hostages were killed by their captors and two of the women have been released.

South Korea is the biggest source of missionaries after the United States, many of them flocking to the world’s hot spots.

Church leaders have been sharply criticised for allowing enthusiastic but ill-trained members to travel by bus in Afghanistan.

There have also been pointed questions about the sensitivity of South Korea’s rapidly growing number of Christian
missionaries in some of the countries they work in and where other religions dominate.

“We are very sorry to have caused any problems to the country over the kidnappings,” said family spokesman Cha.

GOD is forever great and wonderful! I believe through this incident, lots of people have put their faith in Him more than ever... Praise the Lord for His wonderful and perfect plan!

Visitation to... BB House!! 4th August 07

Original post: Visitation to... BB House!! 4th August 07

It was still quite early in the morning ( 8am...for me it's early on Saturday ok?) and I wake up to get prepared and later went to LRT Taman Jaya station... When I reach there, I met with some people that I haven't seen for long long time...finally I met with Sze Yang and Aaron after 7 months...and what surprised me... I met with Cpl Alan from 1st Sarikei company! Haha...It has been one year since we last met in Pesta KL.

While waiting for the only Sgt, Sgt Jed to arrive, I called Mr. Terence to fetch us to the HQ... We are so so honoured when a MyVi and a Toyata (I forgot what model is it...) arrived at the LRT station to fetch us...and what's more, the driver of the Toyota was Cpt Eric... the national secretary of BBM...WOW...

After 5 minutes journey in the car, we arrived at the HQ... a place where I think that it looks more like a normal banglo house than an office. And I think that's why they named it as BB House. In the house, we sat down and chatted... I told you, believe it or not, Cpt Eric is really an interesting person to talk with. He is so amusing. After that, we went to the BB Shop and bought some souvenirs.

Soon we left the place to Amcorp Mall. There we have our lunch and chatted more... I really treasure the moments when I can gathered with my Sarawak friends and chat about our life, BB...girls...hahaha...

At about 4pm, we left McDonald and headed to Taman Jaya...of cuz, we snapped some pictures... Till then, friends, we shall meet again on the 25th August!!

Opps...forgot to mention who went to the HQ...From the left of the pic, Alvin, Aaron, Alan, Sze Yang, me, and Jed...3 more poeple left earlier...they were Aldrin, and 2 GB girls, YL Yiung Sing and YL Tin Yee.


I really wanna thanks all the BB House officers for giving us this opportunity to visit BBHQ...I can sense that Mr Terence put so much effort to make this happen.For your information, the officers purposely opened the HQ on Saturday for us...because normally they don't work on Saturday. And I also wanna thanks for their freebies...Hope that we can help them whenever they need us...

And finally....

SURE & STEDFAST!!
