Meriam Ibrahim, the Christian mother who was held prisoner and initially sentenced to death in Sudan for her faith, is set to receive the National Religious Broadcasters' President's Award later in February for showing "what it means to not be ashamed of Christ."
"Mariam Ibraheem is a modern-day example of what it means to not be ashamed of Christ," said NRB President and CEO Jerry A. Johnson. "We are honored to welcome her to NRB15 as we rejoice with her over God's protective care in her life."
The Islamic government of Sudan sentenced Ibrahim to 100 lashes and to death in 2014 for the crimes of apostasy and adultery for marrying Daniel Wani, an American Christian citizen. The mother was forced to take care of her young son while in prison, and to give birth to her second child while in chains. more >>
