missionary held 47 days
- This past Sunday I saw a friend that I have not seen in 2 or 3 years,
maybe longer. I knew he had been a missionary in South America. A
friend of his, another missionary had been taken captive and was
eventually killed by these South American terrorists of the 1970's. But
it was this past Sunday that he mentioned that his friend was held for
47 days before they killed him. I had to ask again, "How many days?" He
said "47." I looked at my wife and said, "There's that number again."
Well he asked, "What number?" And so began a plan to have lunch at
Denny's and it was there we began discussing the number 47. When we met
that day, he said he had seen the number on three different license
plates. The number is NOT without significance. 47 days. Something is
going on behind the scenes.
