Germany Update

Shiela Lange gives us an update on the German homeschool situation. The Reimke family had their crying children taken by force from their home and placed in the public school.
On Friday, October 20th, three children were picked up by the police and escorted to school in Baden-W├╝rttemberg, with the "promise" that it would happen again this week. (I don't know yet if it has. I know that if they had been my children, we would have left the country--or at least that address--over the weekend!) The previous minister/secretary of education had said that it was senseless to use police force for something like that, that it wasn't good for the children, who were obviously well-cared for, and a waste of time for the police. The current minister/secretary of education apparently has another opinion.
World Net Daily offers more details.

Shilela also updates us about another mother jailed for homeschooling in Germany. She used the time to share the gospel with those in the jail. She was treated well and expects that she'll be making a return visit at some point.

These families need our prayers and support.
