You may remember the story of the abduction of three-year-old Kienan Hebert from his home in Sparwood, British Columbia, Sept. 7th, 2011. Kienan is one of Paul and Tammy Hebert’s eight children, and when Paul went on national television requesting that the kidnapper return their son to a safe place, hours later they found Kienan in their home calm, unharmed and happy to be home. Later, Paul Hebert was able to sit down with the kidnapper and forgive him. What was that conversation like, and how had God been preparing Paul and others to deal with this crime in a way that caught the attention of people worldwide?
On Wednesday, July 13 to Friday, July 15 enjoy a series called "Freedom's Journey".
Living during World War II under the rule of Communism, being a Christian was illegal, but that did not stop Jacob Hiebert and his family, who, like Daniel’s three friends, said, “Our God Whom we serve is able to deliver us” (Daniel 3:17). Jacob and his family were determined to follow God no matter what, and their heart-stopping journey bares the signs of the unmistakable guidance of God in a faith-building story of divine care. During severe trials and persecution, when life appears to be hopeless all around, Jacob’s journey to freedom reveals how we serve a great God Who is able to lead all those who put their trust in Him.
