“During the night, as God directed, they prepared, they put on their shoes. They packed water in their clothes. And they prepared for the journey. They stacked their mattresses in a corner as I understand it and prepared to leave. When they sensed the timing was right, they found a way to open the door that was closed and blocked, filed silently to the path that they had chosen to follow and quickly left the place that they were held, despite the fact that numerous guards were close by.

They identified this landmark before, and they knew that this is the direction that they needed to go.

With God’s help, protection and leading, they quickly made their way through the night. They walked for possibly as much as 10 miles. It’s a little bit hard to discern exactly how far the distance was, but for many miles traveling through woods and thickets, working through thorns and briars.” “A message to the kidnappers: You caused your hostages and their families a lot of suffering. However, Jesus taught us by word and by his own example that the power of forgiving love is stronger than the hate of violent force. As his children, we cannot otherwise but extend forgiveness to you.”
