LOL, Brad! I should have Dreamfield's pasta to celebrate. That's legal. ;)

Seriously though, I'm very glad this man is safe. It must be very hard for him to leave his friends and family behind and not even be able to say good-bye.

What would be interesting is to see her become a believer and they end up getting married. Her and the former Muslim! =-D Lord would call them to serve there?? Hmmm, what a story that would make.
