A Sudanese woman who was sentenced to death for converting from Islam to Christianity, then detained after her conviction was quashed, flew into Rome on an Italian government plane on Thursday and hours later met the Pope. Mariam Yahya Ibrahim, whose sentence and detention triggered international outrage, walked off the aircraft cradling her baby and was greeted by Italian prime minister Matteo Renzi.

She should probably stay out of the U.S. or Obama will send her right back to Sudan again.
What a way to reaffirm her faith.
All the best to her - I am glad she got out - that is not the end though as Christians are be brutalized every day by Muslims. Nobody from the UN is standing up for them and telling the Muslims to be more careful about who and how they target people like they do to Israel - Hypocrites!
THANK THE LORD! We must continue to fervently pray for the persecuted church.
18 And pray in the Spirit on all occasions with all kinds of prayers and requests. With this in mind, be alert and always keep on praying for all the Lords people.
The Italians did what the Americans weren’t willing to.
Well good for her. NOW LET’S GET OUR MARINE OUT OF THAT SH*THOLE MEXICAN JAIL!!!
