"Continue to remember those in prison as if you were together with them in prison, and those who are mistreated as if you yourselves were suffering." Hebrews 13:3
At the time of publication, four Christian men are on trial for their lives in Sudan. Their accuser is the Islamist government, specifically the infamous National Intelligence and Security Services.
The men on trial are Nuba pastors Rev. Hassan Abdelrahim Kod and Rev. Kuwa Shemaal, Darfuri student Abdelmoneim Abdelmoula, and Czech national Petr Jasek, who is a Christian aid worker. They stand accused of several crimes against the State; but their only "crime" is standing in solidarity with the persecuted church in Sudan.
We have seen the brutality of the Islamist regime in Khartoum in the trial of Miriam Ibrahim, who was under sentence of death in 2014 for allegedly "converting" to Christianity. She was only released after intense international pressure.
It seems the only voices the government in Khartoum listens to are not of reason or of human rights and dignity, but those of political pressure.
So be it. If it's pressure they want, we'll give it to them. That is, if you'll join us.
By ourselves, we're nothing. "But with God, all things are possible." (Matthew 19:26)
You can do three short things right now which will help free these brave brothers:
- Sign our Petition to President Obama at www.savethenuba.com.
- Call the White House Comment Line at 202-456-1111 and leave a brief comment asking the President to intervene to help save the four Christian men who are imprisoned in Sudan for standing with persecuted beleivers in that country.
- Share this post with your friends and family members and ask them to take a couple of minutes to help fight Christian persecution.
Thank you so much for your "active compassion." Our brothers and sisters are on the front lines risking all for the sake of the gospel. We must stand with them in solidarity!
