Meriam Ibrahim praised in open ‘thank you’ letter by Christian woman

    The Christian Post: Meriam Ibrahim, arrested last August in Sudan and sentenced to death after being accused by family members of apostasy and adultery, was not only pressured to recant her Christian faith and thereby nullify her marriage, but was kept in shackles while giving birth to her second child in prison. At least one Christian woman, also from Africa, was lauding the 27-year-old’s resilience, and thanking her for bearing “heroic witness to the virtues of faith, marriage, and motherhood.”

Sudan: Independence vote begins; Christians pray for new nation

    Baptist Press: “In addition to the voting across southern Sudan, thousands of Sudanese were expected to vote in neighboring countries — including eight locations in Kenya — in a referendum on independence that, if passed, will officially designate southern Sudan as a new nation. Sudan has been ravaged by years of civil war between the heavily Islamic, Arab-dominated north and the predominantly Christian and animist south. The conflict has driven many southern Sudanese to flee to neighboring countries.”
