Let us come together and save a sister in the faith from death

Tonye Brown // 1:38 PM //

At GodChicks 2010, over 1300 GodChicks wrote letters to free Asia Bibi. This week she was sentenced to death. She is one of thousands of Christians around the world that have been persecuted and wrongly imprisoned for their faith.
Asia Bibi is a 37-year-old Pakistani woman from the village of Ittanwali. She was arrested by police on Friday, June 19, 2009 on charges of blasphemy. Asia is the wife of 50-year-old Ashiq Masih, and their family is one of only three Christian families in a village of more than 1,500 families.

GodChicks we have to go to work and be a voice for Asia. Asia only has 7 days for an appeal!

Proverbs 31:8-9 says,
 8 Speak up for those who cannot speak for themselves,
   for the rights of all who are destitute.
9 Speak up and judge fairly;
   defend the rights of the poor and needy.
Here is what we need to do!
1. PRAY for Asia and for her family. Pray that God would sustain them through this difficult time. Pray for justice for her, and for the attorneys who even now are working on an appeal.
2. WRITE. Asia is one of the prisoners on www.PrisonerAlert.com, which gives several ways to respond. People can write letters of encouragement to Asia at the prison where she is being held.
3. BE AN ADVOCATE! One of the crucial things to do RIGHT AWAY is to be an advocate and email the  President of Pakistan, the Pakistan Embassy in Washington DC and the Pakistan delegation to the UN. Ask for Asia Bibi's life to be spared, for her release & let them know the world is watching.
Email the Pakistan Embassy in DC: ambassador@embassyofpakistanusa.org
Email the President of Pakistan: publicmail@president.gov.pk
Email the Pakistan delegation to the UN: pakistan@un.int
It is CRITICAL to fill up these email boxes with letters on behalf of Asia. We must make the Pakistani government see that carrying out this execution will be noticed by the world, and will be seen as a black mark on Pakistan.
4. SPEAK OUT. Blogs, Twitter and Facebook are great ways to help spread the word. Time is of the essence in this case, she only has 6 days to file an appeal. The more people we can get to send emails and raise the issue, the better.

Please let us know what you are going to do and spread the word!
Do something, she has a few days left to appeal.
