I'm glad they were released.  I recall hearing about it when they were arrested, and I was afraid nothing could be done to help them.

Almost three dozen imprisoned Christian Ethiopians in Saudi Arabia have been freed after months of being held by the authorities there.

The 35 Ethiopians were imprisoned last December 17 for conducting a prayer meeting in a private home.

“We understand that the Saudi’s assaulted, harassed, and pressured the Christians to convert to Islam during the time of their incarceration,” says International Christian Concern’s Jonathan Racho.  According to Racho, the female prisoners were especially mistreated and humiliated.

To God be the Glory in all things! Amen!

Only pray for me, that God would give me both inward and outward strength, that I may not only speak, but truly will; and that I may not merely be called a Christian, but really be found to be one. St.Ignatius of Antioch.Epistle to the Romans.
