As everyone knows the three former FARC held American hostages were rescued back on July 2nd in Colombia. Well this past Friday evening the wife and I had the chance to meet them at my work since they attended a ceremony we were having. I tell you guys what it was great to see them back in the US again and be able to shake their hands. I just recently moved back from Colombia and for the last 2 years while I lived and worked there all I heard was how we were waiting for the right time to rescue them. Thank God they are back and to be able to talk to them and have them tell me their story was incredible.

Here is the leaflets that were air scattered over the jungle. I have a few of them and scanned two at the same time showing different sides of the same leaflet.

Glad to see them back and safe, but what the hell took 5 -10 years to get these people out??? Never knew the US to leave our people somewhere that long. They went into Panama right away.

i think its great that they were rescued, unfortunately alot of people dont make it back. personally i think the best idea is to stay away from countries were your a target for kidnappers.

i feel that missionaries are some of the most Darwin worthy people on the planet. if god does exist i'm sure if he really wanted to spread the word about himself then he would have done it already, instead of sending his lambs to the slaughter.

Apples and oranges when compared to Panama. In Panama you had a guy stuck in a fixed position (PDF prison) versus 3 guys being moved every few days in a jungle.
