These are the pictures of the 21 remaining S. Korean Christian hostages.

Taliban insurgents suggested 4:30 p.m. on August 1 as a new deadline for negotiations after they killed another Korean hostage, Shim Seong-min (29), on July 31. The Taliban said they would kill the 21 hostages one by one if the negotiations fail to meet their expectations this time.

These young men and women are truly profiles in Christian Courage. Please pray for them.
