It's actually information I received by e-mail, from American Center for Law and Justice (ACLJ).
Here is what was e-mailed to me (I copied/pasted):
Tomorrow is a critical hearing for wrongfully detained American Pastor Bryan Nerren.
Pastor Nerren - a U.S. citizen - has been unjustly detained for over three months in India because of his Christian faith. For more than 17 years, he has ministered to the people of Nepal and India - training Sunday School teachers.
Yet, on his most recent trip, he was stopped on his way to a conference. He was asked if he was a Christian and if any of the funds he was carrying would be used to support any Christian work. He was thereafter arrested and had his passport taken away, leaving him stranded in India apart from his family in America, who desperately need him.
We have been representing Pastor Nerren, advocating for his release. Tomorrow is a critical court hearing in which the Siliguri Court could and should finally release his passport and allow him to return home to the U.S. and his family.
As we work to secure Pastor Nerren's freedom, he urgently needs your prayers and your voice.

To me, it's terrible that Pastor Nerren is being persecuted.
Not just because Pastor Nerren is a Christian... who has done work for God in India.
But, also because there are also many Christians who live in India and may also be persecuted.
I praise God for Pastor Nerren, because I believe God loves him.
Thinking about that, made me think about Matthew 5:10, "Blessed are they which are persecuted for righteousness' sake: for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.".
Amen! Blessed are they which are persecuted for righteousness' sake: for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.
Even though God provides, I believe we also need to help others.
So please... click on the link... and sign the petition if you are American... for only those in USA can do that.
If you are able to sign the petition, you can help Pastor Nerren… and ACLJ who has workers to protect him and have him released.
Also, please... join me in prayer for Pastor Nerren.
If you do, I believe God will bless you.
Until next time...
