Praying for the release of Kenneth Bae

Kenneth Bae's mother, Myunghee Bae, right, wipes away tears as she prays with her husband, Sung Seo Bae, during a prayer vigil for the release of their son Saturday at Quest Church in Seattle. Bae, a tour guide who was detained 9 months ago and sentenced to 15 years of hard labor in a North Korean prison, recently contacted his Lynnwood family about his deteriorating health that includes an enlarged heart, severe back pain and diabetes.
