Imprisoned Afghan Christian Released from Prison
by Charles Cherry
Praise God! Mr. Said Musa has been released, and is now safe in another country. From the story:
In a letter dated February 13, Said Musa described a visit by representatives of the U.S. and Italian Embassies offering him asylum. According to the letter, after the foreign representatives left the room, Musa was visited by three Afghan officials who told him that he would be released within twenty-four hours if he wrote a statement declaring that he regretted his conversion to Christianity.
“I laughed and replied, ‘I can’t deny my Savior’s name,'” Musa wrote. “‘Because my life is just service to Jesus Christ and my death is going to heaven [where] Jesus Christ is. I am a hundred percent ready to die. They pushed me much and much. I refused their demands.”
Musa was then transferred back to his prison cell.
