Help free Sudanese Christian sentenced to death

Sudan (MNN) — Violence continues to bring fear and anxiety to Christians in Sudan.

Facing intense persecutions every day has caused some to lose hope and some to stand strong through trials.

Meriam Yahia Ibrahim is a 27-year-old Sudanese doctor due to have her second baby.

After facing many pressures and refusing to renounce her Christian faith, Meriam was condemned to death by hanging.

Will you help keep this brave Christian woman alive?

Open Doors ministry has written a letter to send to key officials in Sudan concerning the release of Meriam.

Part of the letter states, “I call upon the government of Sudan as state party to the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights to respect Mrs. Ibrahim’s right to freedom of religion by allowing her to freely practice her Christian faith. I therefore appeal that you ensure that both sentences against Mrs. Ibrahim be rescinded, and that she is freed immediately and unconditionally so that she and her child can be reunited with her husband.”

Open Doors encourages you to read the guidelines and information posted along with the sample letter (click here) before sending it. Open Doors asks you NOT TO MENTION OPEN DOORS in your letter and to send only the letter found here.

You can help fight for Meriam’s life by sending this letter to the Minister of Justice, the Minister of Foreign Affairs and your local Sudanese Embassy/Consulate with copies to the Minister of Interior. (Click here for the respective addresses and scroll to the bottom of the page.)

Pray that Meriam and other Christians suffering the same sentence would be strong and rely on Jesus Christ.
