unfortunately mr lincoln may be correct in his skepticism. I have now read several articles stating that her own husband is skeptical of the release and that sudanese officials have actually retracted their own statements saying they were misunderstood. let us continue to pray for this dear family because this poor woman is still in much danger and her two children are also imprisoned with her.
I prayed for God's will. But in my heart I wanted so much to hear this!! All for the glory of God!! I can only imagine her struggle and know that only Jesus held held ber through it. Im praying others have been encouraged by her story.
my heart was greatly troubled about the common injustices facing christians in sudan and other like minded places. to find out her half brother and family brought this against her......and further, for their own financial gain......WICKED......we know the times we are living in, right?
According to Sudanese politicians, she was denounced by her own half brother, who complained that she had gone missing for a number of years and the family was then shocked to discover she had married a Christian man. Meriam had always trodden her own path: her father having left when she was six, she was raised not according to his Muslim faith but the Christianity of her mother. She went on to become a successful, educated and independent woman - a doctor who also owned a profitable general store in a Khartoum shopping mall, who married a man - a US national also outside her father's religion - of her own choosing.
If that wasn't offensive enough - to a certain narrow patriarchal thinking - her case, like so many others, appears to have the added impetus of personal grievance. According to her US legal team, her relatives - from whom she was long estranged - brought the complaint out of pure greed: Justice Centre Sudan, an NGO which is paying for her defence, said her family appeared to have set their sights on her business."
