Hundreds come to faith through Prayer Tent  Adam Heather  23rd Feb

650 people gave their lives to Jesus during a week of 24-7 prayer in South Africa which culminated on New Years Eve.

They buy derelict freighters ready for salvage, pack their holds with refugees at $4,000-$8,000 per head, then set sail in the Mediterranean, pointed toward southern Europe. After the voyage is underway, the crew abandons the ship, leaving the refugees on their own.


The type of cargo ship that the smugglers would have been using
