Yes, this does happen right here in the supposedly immune USA. Rifqa was sent back to Ohio by a Florida judge today. Pray she will not be forced to return to her family, that God will fill her with His peace, and that He will be glorified through this situation.
It is not only Rifqa’s life that is in danger. Since her situation has become so well-known, she may be spared dying because of her family’s fear of prosecution–maybe–but she will certainly be beaten, tortured and abused if the account she gives here is accurate (and I believe her). Pray for this little sister.
Update: Fox News has just posted a story stating that Rifqa will now be allowed to remain in Florida in foster care pending a hearing on September 3rd. Praise God, and please continue to pray for her.
