New York City pastor William Devlin has traveled to Khartoum in Sudan where he has met Christian mother Meriam Ibrahim and offered to help bring and take care of her and her family in the United States.
“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.
“Furthermore, because of my long term friendship with the Foreign Minister of Sudan, I have met personally with him and asked him to advocate for this family – and have the Sudanese authorities release this family to me to bring them back to U.S.. I have offered to pay for their flights (the four of them) to America and to house them indefinitely in our home – and to provide for their needs.”
Ibrahim, her husband, Daniel Wani, and their two young children, Martin and Maya, are currently waiting to be granted permission to fly to America.
Ibrahim was initially sentenced to death by a Sudanese court for her Christian faith and for marrying a Christian man. Following an international outcry, the mother was released from prison in June, but was briefly re-arrested after attempting to travel with her family out of Sudan with what authorities claimed were fake travel documents.
