What Next for Saeed?

 

"What can I do now? I'm praying for Saeed and his family. But what next?"

 

 

 

 

I got this question from a media-savvy teenager, this morning.  He's got friends.  They want to do something.

 

 

So I had an idea:  Conspire.

 

Enlist a few friends.  Maybe your small group, class, whatever, and conspire to enlist other people. 

 

1.  Pick some people with big platforms, and tweet them, asking them to let people know about #savesaeed and savesaeed.org.  

 

2. Ask them to join. Find them on twitter. Hit them with a bunch of tweets in one day, using different verbiage, so it's not all cut-and-paste-y.  Just ask them to tweet with that hashtag and the website.

 

3.  See what happens.  See if they surprise you and jump in on behalf of Saeed.

 

Ideas:  Think athletes who are public about their belief in Jesus.  How about Russell "DangeRuss" Wilson?  Tim Tebow? RG3? Or golfer Bubba Watson… or Kurt Warner… or coaches/former stars like Tony Dungy or David Robinson? Or Ray Lewis?

 

Or musicians:  Bono.  Carrie Underwood.  Obviously, there are tons.  I'm just getting you started…

 

Whomever you can think of, who can let others know.  Yes, yes, yes, it matters.

 

5. Have fun with it.  Conspiracies, on behalf of mercy and justice, tend to be wonderfully joyful.  But maybe you already knew that.  

 

God bless you,

i pray and wish for you and your family. I too have had a difficult time with personal persecution here in my own nation and people. I love them desperately and I don't know what to do. God Bless You Precious Saeed.

Is there something we can do for Saeed's wife and family?  Is there a place/address to send cards and words of encouragement (that she could possibly tell Saeed about?).

Obviously I'm not a big TWEETER but I do want to make a difference.  Count me in!

God Bless you Saeed and your beautiful family. Yesterday I read in Our Daily Bread devotional about Joseph thrown in prison for a crime he did not commit (Gen.39), feeling abandoned and forgotten, he was stranded. Still, "the LORD was with Joseph and showed him mercy, and He game him favor" (v.21)But despite God's presence and blessing, Joseph remained incarcerated for years. God's mercy and kindness reaches Saeed, because He is God Almighty and present everywhere! He protects, promotes, and provides when it seems no one else can help.
