A quick note -
Ibrahim Ishag - the Sudanese Christian woman who was condemned to receive a 100 lashes and then be executed will be released from prison, the Sudanese government has announced. No mention was made in the government's statement of the disposition of her sentence for marrying a Christian man in this predominantly Muslim country.
While in prison Meriam gave birth to a daughter. Her sentence was to be carried out when the child reached 2 years of age.
We thank the Lord for hearing the prayers of His people and changing the hearts of Meriam's tormentors. Let us continue to pray for all people of faith who suffer persecution and for those who have been martyred for love of God.
