Ten Christian aid workers in Ukraine released by Russian soldiers
The group consisted of aid workers, volunteers, and refugees. Russian troops abducted the group as they were evacuating people from Mariupol. The troops beat and tortured the volunteers before releasing them. One is in the hospital.
Orphan’s Promise is asking for prayer for another volunteer named Valentina. Russian troops abducted her last March as she was distributing food to people in bomb shelters near Mariupol.
Psalm 102:19-20 says, “For He looked down from the height of His sanctuary; from heaven the LORD viewed the earth, to hear the groaning of the prisoner, to release those appointed to death.”
Sam Brownback heading up Nat’l Committee for Religious Freedom
Brownback served as President Trump’s Ambassador-at-Large for International Religious Freedom and established the first global ministerial on religious freedom.
Brownback told CBN News he’s now concerned about religious liberty violations right here in the U.S.
BROWNBACK: “After working on international religious freedoms for so many years, I came back home and found we’re losing ground here. We’re losing ground in our schools, in our health care system. You keep getting government and big business crowding in on your right to freely practice your faith.”
To illustrate, Brownback said his organization’s bank account was cancelled without explanation.
