My Aunt Milet and Ms. Espie reunites after months of captivity with Abu Sayyaf terrorists. Photo by Inquirer.

This post is just to thank all the people who continued prayed and sent their regards to my Aunt Milet Mendoza who was held captive 2 months by armed Abu Sayyaf.

Just yesterday early morning, we have learned that she has been released and safe now. She is resting and enjoying time with family which I'm sure she missed. She's got lots of stories to tell, but of course I hope local and foreign media would understand she needs to rest after that ordeal.

"I wanted to rest first and I need to gather all my thoughts before facing everyone else," Mendoza said, a bit apologetic after being told that other journalists were waiting for her when she was still in Basilan.

I saw her today, and she is still recuperating afaik. I hope she gets better soon. Again, thank you to everyone who prayed for her.

If you have messages for her, just leave a comment and I'll try getting em for her. ^_^
