Hassan: Privileged in Prison
Hassan and his wife, Awadia, live in the United States with their five children, ages 7 to 20. (See the photo above.) But they haven’t always lived in America — they used to live in Sudan.
Hassan is a Sudanese pastor. In 2015, he was arrested for his Christian work and imprisoned with The Voice of the Martyrs worker, Petr Jasek. (See the previous post.) Thankfully, he was released in May 2017.
Sudan is not a safe place for his family now. They moved to a small American town where they are waiting for a decision on their request for asylum. The children have not had an easy time adjusting to a new home and culture.
But Hassan remains grateful to God. “I realized that God loves me so much, he gave me the privilege to share one of His hard times,” Hassan said.
Please pray for Hassan’s family.
