New York Church Offers To Sponsor Meriam Ibrahim

Galatians 6:9 KJV And let us not be weary in well doing: for in due season we shall reap, if we faint not.

A New York City church is offering to pay for the flights to have Meriam Ibrahim and her family leave Sudan along with providing them food and shelter.

Pastor William Devlin of Manhattan Bible Church traveled to Sudan and met with the Foreign Minister.  The pastor says that he asked the Minister to intervene to allow the family to leave the country with him.

“The Devlin family has offered to bring this family back to the USA from Khartoum and have them live with us. I have been interviewed by the U.S. State Department in Washington D.C. and I have also met for three hours with the U.S. Ambassador to Sudan here in Khartoum – and his senior staff,” Devlin said in an email to The Christian Post on Sunday.  “I, along with another brother in the Lord, were able to go to the Safe House where this persecuted family is currently living in Khartoum and minister to them for over an hour.”

The family is reportedly in good health despite the Sudanese government’s continued actions in keeping Ibrahim from leaving the country.  The family is still waiting for the results of an ultrasound to see if newborn Maya will be able to walk after complications with her birth.
