Meriam Ibrahim Arrives In United States

Isaiah 54:17 No weapon that is formed against thee shall prosper; and every tongue that shall rise against thee in judgment thou shalt condemn. This is the heritage of the servants of the Lord, and their righteousness is of me, saith the Lord.

Meriam Ibrahim’s long journey to freedom has finally ended.

Ibrahim, her husband Daniel Wani and their children arrived in New Hampshire Thursday.  The family arrived at the airport in Manchester to a huge, cheering crowd consisting of many of the Sudanese-American population of the city.

The family is going to be living in Wani’s home in the city near his brother and family.

The members of Sudanese Evangelical Covenant Church held signs saying “God Bless You” and cheering the family all the way to a waiting car.  The church has been preparing Wani’s home for the family and providing all the necessary items for the family to start a new life.

Rev. Joel Kruggel, pastor of Bethany Covenant Church which sponsors the Sudanese church, says he wants the family to “absorb the fact that they are safe in New Hampshire, where life can be closer to normal.”
