Story number 2 for 15 Mar 2000

By March 15, 2000

Meanwhile, The Christian and Missionary Alliance is reporting an attack on Todd and Debbie Adams and their three young children in West Africa. Three armed men in a marketplace hijacked their vehicle last Thursday. The thieves drove off with Todd trying to rescue two of the children, who were eventually pushed out of the car. Thankfully, there were no serious injuries. Todd says while they were separated: “My wife was able to express the reason that we are here in West Africa is to share the Gospel of Jesus Christ. We were able share that we believe that God is faithful and while we don’t understand His plans and His purposes at times, He’s the source of our strength and of our joy.” Adams asks that people pray not only for their continued work, but also for their healing. “There’s a theological knowledge that God is there, and He is caring for our needs. We see that and we recognize that, but our emotions are pretty raw, and it’s difficult to bring those in line with what we know are the truths of God’s character.”
