The Voice of the Martyrs Canada: Despite death sentence, Asia Bibi’s family holds firm.

The Voice of the Martyrs Canada: Despite death sentence, Asia Bibi’s family holds firm: Asia Bibi, a Pakistani Christian woman sentenced to death for blaspheming the Islamic prophet Muhammad, has become the focus of global attention. Believers around the world have rallied to take action on behalf of the 45-year-old wife and mother (for more information on her, click here).

Check out this blog posted on the VOM website and the video above to see how the family of Asia Bibi are coping. It's a strange thought, I mean how does one really cope with a situation like this? It just breaks my heart every time I see her daughters, and how brave and optimistic they are. God bless them. I don't know what I would do if anything happened to my own mother, the relationship a girl has as she grows up with her mom is irreplaceable.

Asia Bibi's story has really touched millions, and taught others about the reality of sharia and the injustice of blasphemy. I'm so glad that they are being made aware of just how many people are standing strong for them and lifting them up in prayers. So community, please continue to do so, make it a specific act of faith to verbalize your prayers for Asia and her family and others that are suffering in this persecution. I have seen it again this weekend, how prayer has effects that we may not even understand or see come to fruition but God does. He hears our prayers and our desperation for His grace and mercy in these situations that are beyond our control.

The Power of Prayer: before you even voice one it has an impact!

This month I’ll be volunteering at The Call Detroit. On November 11th, 2011 thousands of Christians from all over America (and my mom and me from Canada, among others I’m sure) will gather together and pray for the future of Michigan, the United States, and the world.

According to the Transform Michigan website:

It is widely said how Detroit goes will indicate the direction our nation will take.  It was once an economic and automotive engine of the United States.  Detroit is ground zero for the spiritual war in our nation. Poverty, racism, and Islam are most powerfully rooted here - more than anywhere else in the nation.”

Thank you for 2000+ views!

Thanks to everyone who's been keeping up with the blog, I appreciate all your time, advice, comments and constant encouragement both for me and my family. We all know no good deed goes unpunished but thankfully thus far our efforts have been reciprocated extremely positively! THANKS!

If you haven't seen this, here's a documentary that's quite an interesting watch; it's a bit basic for people who already have researched islam, however if you're new to the topic and want a bit of breakdown regarding the islamic culture and why it is the way it is, it'll give that to you.

Also keep watching out soon for some new upcoming event and news blogs!

Warning: it is LONG, a full documentary about an hour and a half so if you're busy working or studying like me you might want to watch it in parts!
