The latest report is that Said Musa was released from prison last week (February 21) and is out of Afghanistan after intense international diplomatic pressure.

Please now pray for Shoaib Assadullah, an Afghan Christian arrested for giving someone a Bible, who may also be up for execution for his actions.

You can read the reports about both men here.

The Word is not bound!

    Since we took the time to ask the President via Twitter that he intervene, may I suggest we also take the time to thank him via Twitter for any action the administration took?

    1. JMH says:

      Good suggestion Rob.

  3. Randy O says:

    I am weeping for joy. Lord bless Said Musa and protect him. May he be used of you to spread your truth and love to others. I agree let us thank our president for any part they played.

    Justin:

    Thank you for making your readers aware of Said’s crisis, so we had the opportunity to pray and see God move on his behalf. To God be the glory in this wonderful outcome.

    Praise the Lord that Said has been freed!

    It is so good to hear that this gentleman has been released.
    I am intrigued by the last sentence of this post. “The Word is not bound!” If he had been executed would we conclude that it was?

  8. Ken, I have often heard the saying, “The blood of the martyrs is the seed of the church.” If he had been executed,his witness as a martyr would have been as spectacular and long-living in people’s memories as his release due to prayer, political pressure and social media now is. Either way, the word would not be bound. IMO.
