During the day, I engaged some of them with gist, asked them a few questions. (gist for another day). Beside me. Human bones were scattered inside the cave, I asked them whose bones were those, they said some people killed their family members, that they refused to come to pay the ransom, so they allowed the guy to die of hunger (heartless people). ”

” They said that’ s how they will starve me too. They left me without even drinking water, I pleaded with them but they refused, I waited and waited while praying my last prayers because they already called the people buying organs and they also have an operation to go again that evening. ”

” I have a lot to say and I haven’ t even told you guys how God did it for me and so many things I saw. (Gist for another day). I want to Appreciate God for coming through for me and also for my family. “
