Freed Pastors Story One of Faith and Determination

The story of one pastor's 21 months in jail is one of perseverance and divine intervention. CBN News has learned new information about what led to the release of an imprisoned Iraqi pastor known as Pastor Jamal. He's free now thanks in part to a bold step taken by a U.S. Ministry and a U.S. Lawmaker.
Terry Law, Founder and President of World Compassion Terry Law Ministries of Tulsa, Oklahoma spoke to CBN News about how he and a U.S. Senator, with God's help, gained this pastor's freedom.
Law said Pastor Jamal had received treatment for a brain tumor before his imprisonment, but he continued to suffer headaches in prison. That led Law to make a personal visit to northern Iraq with a letter from U.S. Senator James Inhofe, R-Okla., asking for Jamal's release. The Senator had sent it prior to Law's trip but Iraqi official never saw it.
