When Anwar Sadat, of Egypt, was
assassinated, they provided a temporary burial place beside Egypt’s
Unknown Soldier. How interesting that Egypt’s best-known soldier should
be buried beside Egypt’s Unknown Soldier! In the kingdom of God,
there are many unknown soldiers. They march right beside the
well-known soldiers. They do their parts. What they do is important!
Without their work, the famous would not be famous! Without them,
nothing would be accomplished!
