"These people have been good to me, they are feeding me with all what I want to eat, they have provided a nice place for me to sleep, blanket and every need, so I believe they didn't do anything wrong to me. I still believe that God who made them act in such a way is still alive and would make all arrangement, by the Grace of God, I will be together with my wife, children and my colleagues and if the opportunity has not been granted, maybe it is the will of God."
