Pray with Others Live: Targeted Afghanis Tell American Intercessors: “You Are Our Hope”

Today Joyce and I were on Intercessors for America's program Pray with Others Live, and I got to share about an article and video I've literally been working on for months: Targeted Afghanis Tell American Intercessors: “You Are Our Hope” tracking what friends and colleagues of mine on Janet Porter's sitcom What's a Girl to Do are doing to liberate Afghanis who are in Taliban crosshairs for helping America or because of their Christian faith. Joyce and I divided up the other articles. 

Watch the program by clicking here or the image below. There was a power outage at IFA headquarters, and we resumed the broadcast at the 8:00m mark....

And here's the video with interviews of Afghanis now living in freedom and one of their liberators:

I Dreamed I Was Free tells the story of Quaker abolitionist John Woolman, who spoke against slavery a century before our Civil War.

From someone on a thread I'm following made up of those helping to liberate Afghanis and those they're liberating:

Human Rights Watch says sensitive information from Western governments' biometric methods has been leaked to the Taliban over the years and is now in the hands of the Taliban, putting thousands of Afghans at risk.
A report released by Human Rights Watch on Wednesday shows that the Taliban have received very sensitive information about the identities of thousands of Afghan citizens who worked with Western governments.
According to Human Rights Watch, information provided to the Taliban included eye scans, fingerprints, photographs, relatives' details and the exact address of the house.
Human Rights Watch has expressed concern that the Taliban may use this amount of digitally stored information and identities for revenge purposes.
Blixville, a senior fellow at Crisis and Conflict at Human Rights Watch, said organizations that have helped gather so much personal information from Afghans could inadvertently help the Taliban repress and retaliate.
Blix said digital identities and information were not well maintained and that the trend was threatening thousands of people.
A former military commander still in Afghanistan told Human Rights Watch that the Taliban had taken eye and fingerprints from him to compare with the information he had.
The Taliban have threatened to kill the former military commander if his identity is found in the intelligence.
Human Rights Watch says there is currently no system or law to protect information in Afghanistan.
