"Contrary to earlier reports, the fate of two Syrian Bishops kidnapped in Syria this week remains unknown. A spokesman for SAT-7, Greg Garrett, says despite reports of their release by BBC, Al-Jazeera, Reuters, and the Associated Press, "I received an e-mail directly from the Syrian Orthodox Archdiocese of Aleppo stating that they had not been released and to wait, basically, for them to give a further report, and that they would certainly contact us once the release had been confirmed." SAT-7 is a Christian satellite television ministry to the Middle East and North Africa. Their programming teams responded immediately. "We had a special live program that lasted for two hours called 'Kermalak,' which means 'Just For You, Syria.' We took calls from believers all over the Middle East, addressing questions, concerns. Basically, (we were) spending time praying as well for their safe release." That prayer vigil continues. Will you join them? The rest of their prayer needs are at MissionNetworkNews.org."
