Afganul Said Musa eliberat cu ajutorul lui John Piper, Rick Warren – Said Musa released with help from two Pastors

From, the Voice of the Martyrs website that our own Romanian brother Richard Wurmbrand founded. You will find the English version of the announcement below this Romanian translation.

Said Musa a fost eliberat dupa interventii din partea Pastorilor John Piper, Rick Warren si citiva Congressmen. Detaliile eliberarii sint confidentiale si   pentru ca el si sotia lui sa nu ajunga din nou in pericol nu se stie nimic, public despre ei. Am scris despre condamnarea lui la moarte aici. Va veti aduce aminte ca el si-a pierdut piciorul intr-o explozie de mina cu multi ani in urma, si a fost arestat dupa ce cineva a filmat botezul lui si al altora si la difuzat la televiziunea Afgana. Dumnezeu are alte planuri pentru el (decit moartea lui) si va ramine pentru noi un exemplu demn de urmat. Prima data cind a fost fortat sa renunte la credinta, a facut-o, dar imediat s-a schimbat si si’a cerut iertare lui Dumnezeu pentru frica care la cuprins si apoi au urmat torturile si condamnarea la moarte. Nu avem detalii de ce a fost eliberat, dar organizatia Persecution care face parte din Vocea Martirilor (organizatia lui Richard Wurmbrand) raporteaza ca Pastorii John Piper si Rick Warren impreuna cu un numar de Congressmen Americani sint responsabili pentru eliberarea sa.

Un alt Crestin Afghan, numit Shoaib Assadullah care a fost arestat in acelas timp si acuzat de aceeasi infractiune de lege ca si Said Musa, ramine inchis si condamnat la moarte. Crima lui Assadullah a fost ca a dat un Nou Testament unui om, care mai tirziu la raportat la autoritati. Sa ne rugam mai departe si pentru acest intemnitat si condamnat la moarte ca Dumnezeu sa il intareasca, si sa lucreze prin aceste marturisiri publice in tari cu credinte Islamice si la tara si poporul nostru ca sa renuntam la lucrurile trecatoare si nefolositoare si sa lucram pentru Hristos .

Afghanistan: Afghan Prisoner Released (click on

title to read from website)

Imprisoned Afghan Christian Said Musa has recently been released from prison. Compass Direct News reported that Said left the country Feb. 21, 2011, after being released days earlier. Said was arrested May 31, 2010, after a TV station broadcast video showing Afghan Christians being baptized and worshiping. Turning from Islam is a capital offense in Afghanistan.

Early in his imprisonment, Said was forced to publicly deny Jesus on TV, an act of which he later repented. He wrote, “I acknowledge my sin before [the] Lord Jesus Christ.… I am a very, very weak and [sinful] man.”

In prison, Said was beaten, sleep deprived and physically and sexually abused. He wrote a series of letters to the international community detailing his treatment and discussing his faith. In a final letter, dated Feb. 13, Said wrote that three Afghan officials tried to convince him to recant his faith. He wrote, “I laughed and replied, ‘I can’t deny my Savior’s name. 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.’”

Said converted to Christianity eight years ago. He worked for the Red Cross for more than 15 years, fitting amputees for prosthetic limbs.

Said’s wife and six children are safely out of the country, but details concerning his release are being kept confidential in order to protect him and his family. Said’s release was secured with the help of international attention from John Piper, Rick Warren and several U.S. congressmen. A source in Afghanistan told Compass Direct News, “When local churches and international bodies advocate for the persecuted in faith, they have the power to change things.”

Another Afghan Christian, Shoaib Assadullah, remains in prison, charged with the same apostasy charge that Said faced. Shoaib was arrested in northern Afghanistan after giving a New Testament to a man who later reported him to authorities. In December, he was told he had one week to recant his faith or he would be sentenced to death. A January court hearing was postponed due to international pressure. In a Feb. 17 letter, he wrote, “The court’s decision is most definitely going to be the death penalty for me.”

Diplomatic efforts are underway to free Shoaib.
