Rev. Wengam said, “We know that you have been provoked to an unimaginable proportion…the Bible says, we don’t meet anger with anger. We will pray for restrain on behalf of Israel and divine guidance on how to deal with the issue at hand and also trust that the good Lord will intervene for these men, women, and children who have been held hostage.”
