Story number 1 for 23 May 2001

(Angola)–Our newscast begins today in Angola where sixteen World Vision staff members are missing after rebels took over a northern Angola city more than 130 miles east of the capital city, Luanda. The fighting has forced the Christian humanitarian organization to suspend its program helping people displaced by fighting. World Vision’s Delvin Walker. “Communication in that particular area has been cut off, so we haven’t been able to reach them by phone, or by any kind of radio. World Vision staff members in that particular location have been trying to interview the IDP’s (Internally Displaced Persons) to find out if they have heard any news about their employees.” Walker urges people to pray. He adds that no matter where their workers are, they will continue the work of sharing the hope of the Gospel. “I’m very sure that the kind of staff members we have there will be comforting the various people along the roads and talking with them and spreading the Gospel as they move from one place to the other.”
