I’ve always been amazed at how our sovereign God can turn tragedy into triumph. Take the case of John and Reve Walsh, In July of 1981, their little boy Adam, 6 years old, was abducted from a nearby Sears store. Two weeks later, Adam’s mutilated body was found 150 miles away. Well, one thing led to another and John became the host of “American’s Most Wanted,” one of the hottest shows on television. “America’s Most Wanted” wages its war on crime every Sunday night, and the results have been astounding. As of this writing, 96 fugitives have been nabbed by phone-in tips – about one per week.
