#SaveMeriam Update!

Meriam Ibrahim, the Sudanese Christian woman imprisoned for her faith has finally been allowed to leave Sudan!

Yesterday the great news rang out on Facebook and numerous other places after her long agonizing battle of persecution under a Islamic influenced government.

Thursday, July 24, 2014 Meriam and family arrived in Italy and met with Pope Francis in Rome. The meeting has been dubbed as “calm and affectionate” as the Pope wanted it to be a “gesture of support to all those who suffer for their faith, and living in difficult or restrictive situations”.

Thanks to the Italian government Meriam and her family were finally able to leave Sudan after a failed first attempt to leave the country, rearrest and release. Since, she and her family have been holed up in a temporary home in the American Embassy. (Being anywhere else could have exposed this family to far worse than what they had already been through.)

Fortunately for this persecuted family, they are on their way home after a long fight. Let us not forget our persecuted brethren scattered abroad throughout the world even as the violence against Israel continues and organizations like ISIS place labels on Christians in order to convert and or persecute them.

In Mosul, ISIS militants marked with a spray-painted ن (the Arabic letter for “N”) all Christian property to be seized after the ultimatum. “N”, or ن​, is the first letter of the Arabic word for Christian, “Nasrani” or Nazarene. #pray4thepersecuted
