Goat Cheese and the Gospel / Ibrahim Still Imprisoned

Great story about two women looking for a way to share the gospel with a Muslim community!

To initiate relationships, Andiari straps on her ice chest and walks about 1.2 miles down a dirt path through clustered trees to a small collection of villages. As she walks through town, people react to her contagious smile by shouting a warm greeting or offering a hearty handshake...

Andiari says the greatest lesson she has learned from her goat’s milk venture is that God keeps His promises. He called her to work with Muslims and enabled her to access local Muslim communities by searching for ways to connect with them.

FULL STORY


Please continue to pray for Daniel and Ibrahim as they undergo such horrible injustice.  Ibrahim is in prison for being a Christian. Last week she had a baby in prison while her legs were still shackled.

Ibrahim was sentenced to 100 lashes for adultery and to death for apostasy this month. She told a court in Khartoum that she had been brought up as a Christian, and she refused to renounce her faith. She and Wani married in 2012, but the court ruled that the union was invalid and Ibrahim was guilty of adultery.
"An 'illegitimate' marriage does not result in legally recognised offspring, which means that my son and the new baby are no longer mine," Wani said.
He said his wife was committed to her Christian faith. "Even last week, they brought in sheikhs and she told them: 'I'm pretty sure I'm not going to change my mind.'"
