For those of you who were praying in 2011...
Many of you were praying for my friend Jess, who was kidnapped in Somalia in October 2011.  After 93 days she was rescued.  It was just over a year ago, and now she is sharing her incredible story.  Her book comes out tomorrow.  You can see interviews on multiple media sources this week.

60 Minutes: The Rescue of Jessica Buchanan

NPR: 'Impossible Odds' Details Aid Worker's Rescue From Somalia

Jess has been overwhelmed by the support and prayers from around the world.  Thank you for your thoughts!  Her husband and her are very grateful, as are her family and friends.  This is beyond words when it's someone you actually know.  Some one I laughed with, cried with, and drank too much wine with.  Jess and Erik, you are amazingly strong!  This sounds so clich√©, but I can't think of a more fitting truth: Nothing is impossible with God.  I think God has big plans for the Landemalm family!


  1. Hey Kimberly! I saw her interview with Dr. Phil yesterday. So amazing is an understatement. Will continue to pray for them both as the healing is not finished yet. Ruth Norman
