BREAKING: Meriam is free!


 

BREAKING: Meriam is free!
Dear friend, Just a few hours ago, we received some wonderful news: Meriam Ibrahim has been freed!

I wanted you to be among the first to know that the appeal court has overturned her convictions for adultery and apostasy, and declared her innocent of all charges. She and her children, Martin and Maya, are now back with her husband Daniel. We are thanking God for this amazing miracle! Can you join us to keep praying for Meriam and her family?

Meriam and her family still aren’t safe. People claiming to be her family members have threatened to carry out her death sentence themselves, and her lawyers have received death threats because of their involvement with her case. We’re appalled by this. Everyone has the right to freedom of religion or belief, and to uphold this right, as Meriam’s lawyers are doing. This right is guaranteed in international law, as well as in Sudan’s own constitution. Please pray urgently for Meriam, her family and her lawyers.  
It’s time to change the world, so that no one should have to go through what Meriam went through – months on death row, simply because of her faith. She even had to give birth in chains.  Please uphold her in prayer. Thank you. Blessings Emma CSW Communications Team P.S. Thank you so much for everything you did to help secure Meriam’s release. But she’s not the only one we’re campaigning for. As long as there are people who are harassed, threatened and imprisoned for their faith, we’ll be speaking up for them.  I’ll be in touch with you soon to tell you how you can get involved – meanwhile, thank you again for all you’ve done. Meriam is free!
