Song For Dayna & Heather

By Gerry M. Kaye

Psalms 55:16; 5: 1,2  As for me, I will call upon GOD; and The LORD shall Save me.

Give Ear to my words, O LORD, Consider my meditation.

Hearken to the voice of my cry, my KING: for to You will I pray.

Nov. 16, 2001 Rescued American aid workers Dayna Curry (L) and Heather Mercer talked about their ordeal at the hands of the Taliban at a press conference in Islamabad November 16, 2001. 

Mercer and Curry, along with four German and two Australian aid workers who were also rescued by U.S. special forces from capture in Afghanistan, detailed their three month ordeal at the hands of the hard-line Taliban Islamic militia who put them on trial for preaching Christianity. 

Heather Mercer and Dayna Curry thanked GOD that they were out of Afghanistan, but said they would like to return one day, and feel no animosity towards their Taliban captors.

Mercer recounted the moment of their freedom when an Alliance soldier burst into their prison cell shouting: "You're free, you're free, the city's free, the Taliban have left."

The women said, that they were treated with respect by the Taliban, some referring to them as sisters and saying that they loved them.

Dayna Curry (L) and Heather Mercer

Psalms 91: 2,4  I will say of The LORD,
He IS my Refuge and my Fortress: ...
...His Truth shall be
your Shield and Buckler.

Freed Americans Heather Mercer and Dayna Curry thanked GOD that they were out of Afghanistan, and said that He was really There, Close to them throughout
their ordeal. They thanked everyone that prayed for them.
Nov. 16, 2001 ISLAMABAD, Pakistan:   Tear choked aid workers held by the Taliban for over three months for preaching Christianity have told reporters in Pakistan that they used their faith to get through the ordeal.

The day after their release they have told of their months in captivity, the dramatic rescue at the
hands of American special forces and anti-Taliban troops, as well as their hopes for a free

They said that they were shocked when they discovered they were to go on trial after 22 hours of interrogation by the Taliban and that a child's religious book they gave to an Afghan child was to be used as evidence against them.

Curry: "Our government did an incredible job and got us out of there safely." After their escape the group of eight stayed for two nights in the homes of the Northern Alliance before being taken to Pakistan by the American special services.

A. Song For Dayna & Heather

You've been to the valley, to the deep, deep valley
in a place of dark despair.
You've been to the valley, to the deep, deep valley,
then you prayed for GOD to Save you there.

Then He Said: Go up to the mountain, to the highest mountain,
and I'll Come Down and Guide you, then I'll Say, Beloved:
You've been to the valley, to the deep, deep valley,
but now you've overcome, today.

In The Name Of Our LORD,

Psalms 148: 1; 149:1; 150:2
Praise you The LORD; praise you The LORD from the Heavens:
praise Him in the heights.


Sing to The LORD a new song,
and His Praise in the Congregation of Saints.

Praise GOD in His Sanctuary; praise Him in the Firmament of His Power.

Praise Him for His Mighty Acts ... according to His Excellent Greatness.

Let everything that has breath praise The LORD. Praise you The LORD!
