Two Germans killed in Yemen were Bible School Students

SANAA (ANS) -- Two German bible school students have been kidnapped and murdered in Yemen. Anita G. (24) and Rita S. (26) were studying at the evangelical Brake Bible School in Lemgo (West Germany), as director Matthias Ruether confirmed to the evangelical news agency idea, June 16.

Both nurses were on a short-term internship at the Al Jumhuri hospital in Saada (North Yemen). It is supported by the humanitarian agency Worldwide Services in the Netherlands.

Anita G. and Rita S., members of a Baptist Church in Wolfsburg (North Germany), were abducted June 12 north of Saada on an excursion with a German couple and their three children, a British engineer and a South Korean teacher.

The two German women were first stabbed and then shot. Young-Sun I. (34) was also murdered, while the fate of the other hostages remains unclear. According to some unconfirmed press reports they have also been murdered.

Brake Bible School is in deep shock about the murder of the students. They were dedicated in their desire to help the needy. That was their sole motivation to go to Yemen.. Both women belong to a Baptist church made up mainly of ethnic German emigrants from Russia.

After just finishing the book "Tortured For Christ" this morning I pray that the Lord will use this tragedy to reach these murderers and bring them to saving faith in Jesus Christ. I am in tears and praying for the families affected by this shocking, evil deed.
