    Praise God.

    An event over which we can all rejoice.

  2. Pageantmaster Ù† says:

    What wonderful news, and proof of the power of prayer. Thanks indeed be to God.

  3. Katherine says:

    I hope, for her safety and that of her children, that she can be quickly given a visa to leave Sudan and come to the USA.

  4. Milton says:

    New reports from their legal team are that the whole family was arrested again at the airport by the Sudanese national security agency and the lawyers were nearly arrested with them. Speculation is that rivalry between different factions of the government produced the arrest as a show of authority. Pray for the quick release of the entire family out of the country.
