Philip Rizk Released

On Sunday night our Bible Study group prayed for a friend of one of our members. Philip Rizk, whose mother is German and father is Egyptian and who is a graduate of Wheaton College, was arrested by the Egyptian police and held in secret isolation for several days. Why? Philip was part of a peaceful protest group advocating for the human rights of Palestinians as an Egyptian citizen. After one protest march, he was arrested and taken away.
All around the world people began praying for release. Today it happened!
