Praise report–Yemen

In 2012 and 2013, Lent & Beyond posted many prayers for the nation of Yemen. These recent news reports are related to several of the prayers. Praise God!
Human Rights Watch‘s Alison Des Forges Award celebrates the valor of individuals who put their lives on the line to protect the dignity and rights of others. It has given the award to Arwa Othman, a writer, journalist, anthropology researcher and leading advocate working to end child marriage in Yemen. She laid the groundwork for improving women’s rights in Yemen.
She is donating the international human rights prize money to the country’s tiny and persecuted Jewish minority. Othman made the announcement at a celebration Thursday in the capital city of Sanaa, where roughly half of the country’s Jewish population — numbering fewer than 90 in total — live in a guarded compound.
