Egypt: Release Sherif

UPDATE: Sherif was released: Dear Friends and Family, Thanks very much for all your prayers for Sherif these last 3 weeks. I am very happy to say that Sherif arrived safely back at Heathrow last night (29th) after 20 days of detainment and harrassment"

Many of us are praying for the release of Sherif Hassan from the security forces in Egypt. Sherif is an Egyptian Citizen and a follower of Jesus. There are no charges but officials are threatening a 3 year jail term. A phone call yesterday between Sherif and his English wife, Emma , [they were married this summer at All Souls in London] was cut off and everyone is worried.
