Matthew 14:22-33 (New Living Translation)

Jesus Walks on Water
 22 Immediately after this, Jesus insisted that his disciples get back into the boat and cross to the other side of the lake, while he sent the people home. 23 After sending them home, he went up into the hills by himself to pray. Night fell while he was there alone. 24 Meanwhile, the disciples were in trouble far away from land, for a strong wind had risen, and they were fighting heavy waves. 25 About three o’clock in the morning Jesus came toward them, walking on the water. 26 When the disciples saw him walking on the water, they were terrified. In their fear, they cried out, “It’s a ghost!”
 27 But Jesus spoke to them at once. “Don’t be afraid,” he said. “Take courage. I am here!”
 28 Then Peter called to him, “Lord, if it’s really you, tell me to come to you, walking on the water.”
 29 “Yes, come,” Jesus said.
   So Peter went over the side of the boat and walked on the water toward Jesus. 30 But when he saw the strong wind and the waves, he was terrified and began to sink. “Save me, Lord!” he shouted.
 31 Jesus immediately reached out and grabbed him. “You have so little faith,” Jesus said. “Why did you doubt me?”
 32 When they climbed back into the boat, the wind stopped. 33 Then the disciples worshiped him. “You really are the Son of God!” they exclaimed.

Rules...I told someone earlier this week that I was born to break them! In the past I believed that. But...the rules I chose to break then were GOD'S rules. Now I believe GOD is saying to me that I need to break the world's rules. I started out my day breaking a rule. A rule that I have made for myself. A friend of mine told me that she thinks when you're depressed, down or just having a bad day and you think you should stay home from church, that's when you need to go. I think so too. So...I made a rule for myself, if I wasn't sick and had no real reason to not go to church...I would go...

Today I chose to break that rule and stay home. You know funny things happen when you don't do what you know you should. Sometimes they are good things. I had turned on the radio and was listening to a Christian channel. Next thing I knew I was singing along. They call the program that was on, Sunday Morning Worship. I stopped the things I was doing and just started listening to the radio and "Worshiping". The "funny" thing that happened was...regardless of the fact that I chose to stay home, GOD still had a plan for my life today. The more I worshiped the more HE made HIMSELF real to me. Then HE spoke something to my heart...

"You are MY child and you are forgiven." WOW!! I know that already but sometimes it's a hard concept for me to grasp. Then HE spoke to me, "You need to start breaking the rules. Rules the world has set down. You need to break the rules of the world and make my MY rules count. You need to step out on the water and do the things I need you to do." Then this story of Peter walking on the water came to my mind. So...I thought about all of this for awhile. Then I got on my computer and looked up the story...

It's an amazing story. A story of not only faith but also truth. How the LORD won't leave you alone. If HE asks you to do something HE will be there with you. We don't need to be afraid to do HIS will. All we have to do is have faith. JESUS is coming back soon. We all have family and friends that aren't going to Heaven unless they change their lives and accept CHRIST. We may not be the one's chosen to tell them but GOD has chosen us to tell some. That's why everyone of us has to be willing to tell the people in our part of this world about HIM. We also have to study HIS word and spend time alone with HIM. It's an incredible experience when you do that. Not only is it good for you, it will help you when an opportunity arises to tell someone else about JESUS.

So...start breaking some rules!! Step out in faith and believe!! Trust that JESUS is there to help you walk across the water. Just don't look down. Keep your eyes on HIM...your LORD and SAVIOR. HE won't let you down no matter the circumstance!!

Remember...If HE brings you to your knees...It's good for you!!

1 Peter 3:10-12 (New Living Translation)

10 For the Scriptures say,
   “If you want to enjoy life
      and see many happy days,
   keep your tongue from speaking evil
      and your lips from telling lies.
 11 Turn away from evil and do good.
      Search for peace, and work to maintain it.
 12 The eyes of the Lord watch over those who do right,
      and his ears are open to their prayers.
   But the Lord turns his face
      against those who do evil.”

Psalm 9:1-2

1-2 I'm thanking you, God, from a full heart, I'm writing the book on your wonders.
   I'm whistling, laughing, and jumping for joy;
      I'm singing your song, High God.

This Psalm out of the Message Bible is great! GOD has been making himself very real to me this week. For me I don't usually, literally, walk around whistling, laughing or jumping. But...on the inside I am! GOD has given me a full heart! It is so funny because not long ago I wouldn't even have known what a full heart meant. I can't thank HIM enough for what HE has done for me!! The LORD is changing me daily from the inside out. Tonight I wasn't going to post anything but I am just so excited about what JESUS has done and what HE is going to do that I just had too say something.

If you are reading this and you don't have peace, joy and love in your life...I know where you can get it!! JESUS CHRIST came to this world to give you all of those things. In fact HE will give you more than you could ever imagine. I was a mess when I finally gave my life to HIM. I didn't have any of that in my life. But is great. I do have peace. I know when I die or JESUS returns, I will go to Heaven. Whatever happens in my life I know that everything will be okay. The constant turmoil I once felt inside is gone!! I have joy and love in my life. I have friends that I can count on. I have friends that love me and I love them. In fact I actually say those three words a lot. I love you!! It's really hard not to say them!! People probably get tired of me saying it. I don't know!! Not long ago I was sure nobody loved me and you would have had to threaten to kill me to get me to say those words. Do I have bad days still...yes. Do things go wrong in my life...yes. Bad things still happen and satan still gives me a hard time. The difference is...satan won't win anymore! Not because of me, not because of my friends. It's all because of JESUS and HIM dying on the cross and then defeating satan!!

If you don't know JESUS as your LORD and SAVIOR you need to accept HIM. HE will change your life forever. You can have a full heart and be full of more peace, joy, and love than you ever thought possible. Just ask HIM into your life right now!! Say a prayer like this one...

Dear LORD JESUS, I know that I am a sinner, and I ask for YOUR forgiveness. I believe that YOU died for my sins and rose from the dead. I turn from my sins and invite you to come into my heart and life. I want to trust and follow YOU as my LORD and SAVIOR. Thank YOU JESUS for forgiving me!! In JESUS Name, Amen.

If you know any Christians tell them what you just did. If you don't...find a church and tell the people there! Read the Bible and talk to GOD a lot! HE will talk back to you. Just listen.

Jeremiah 29:12-13 (The Message) 12"When you call on me, when you come and pray to me, I'll listen. 13"When you come looking for me, you'll find me. "Yes, when you get serious about finding me and want it more than anything else, I'll make sure you won't be disappointed."

GOD is absolutely amazing in my life!! This week has been a crazy GOD filled week for me. That is actually the best kind of week to have. It all started on Sunday at church...

The announcements were being given and I was about half way listening. He mentioned about a special speaker that will be there for four days in August and I thought that will be good. Then he said there was a new class going to start on evangelism and there is only seven spots left so you better sign up now. My immediate thought was...I need to do that. Then I thought...Have you lost your mind? Then it was...You need to do that!!!! Well, there are times when I don't do what I know I should. This was one of them. I left and did not find out about the class. As the day went on I couldn't seem to forget about it. No matter what I was doing, every so often that would be uppermost in my thoughts. I started thinking things like, if there is still one place open next time I'm at church I'll sign up. Deep down I knew that wasn't good enough. I needed to call and tell the people doing the class to sign me up. But, I didn't...

Monday came. I went to work and was telling my friend about it. We talked and I was more convinced than ever that I was supposed to take this class. The thing is, I really didn't want to because I will probably have to do things I am not comfortable doing. GOD doesn't seem to really care about that. HE likes to stretch you so that you will grow. At this point I still wasn't ready to concede my will. At lunch I went and sat in my car to eat and decided to read my Bible. That seems to be a mistake if you are trying to get out of doing something you know GOD wants you to do. I picked it up anyway and opened it to where I just happened to have a bookmark stuck...
Ephesians 3:1-13 (The Message)
The Secret Plan of God
 1-3This is why I, Paul, am in jail for Christ, having taken up the cause of you outsiders, so-called. I take it that you're familiar with the part I was given in God's plan for including everybody. I got the inside story on this from God himself, as I just wrote you in brief.  4-6As you read over what I have written to you, you'll be able to see for yourselves into the mystery of Christ. None of our ancestors understood this. Only in our time has it been made clear by God's Spirit through his holy apostles and prophets of this new order. The mystery is that people who have never heard of God and those who have heard of him all their lives (what I've been calling outsiders and insiders) stand on the same ground before God. They get the same offer, same help, same promises in Christ Jesus. The Message is accessible and welcoming to everyone, across the board.
 7-8This is my life work: helping people understand and respond to this Message. It came as a sheer gift to me, a real surprise, God handling all the details. When it came to presenting the Message to people who had no background in God's way, I was the least qualified of any of the available Christians. God saw to it that I was equipped, but you can be sure that it had nothing to do with my natural abilities.
 8-10And so here I am, preaching and writing about things that are way over my head, the inexhaustible riches and generosity of Christ. My task is to bring out in the open and make plain what God, who created all this in the first place, has been doing in secret and behind the scenes all along. Through followers of Jesus like yourselves gathered in churches, this extraordinary plan of God is becoming known and talked about even among the angels!
 11-13All this is proceeding along lines planned all along by God and then executed in Christ Jesus. When we trust in him, we're free to say whatever needs to be said, bold to go wherever we need to go. So don't let my present trouble on your behalf get you down. Be proud!

The whole passage is very good but verses 7 & 8 just about jumped off the page at me. In no way am I comparing my self  to Paul but, GOD wants to use all of us no matter what our natural abilities are. GOD will help us but if we have the chance to do something to help ourselves to prepare we should. So I went back in work and showed my friend this passage. She laughed and basically told me I needed to make the call. I still said I was going to wait. I went to my cube, sat down and put my headphones on. I was listening to a Christian channel and a new song came on. The first words are...HE could never ask too much of me, I will go there willingly. I thought okay, this is it I better call. So Monday night I got their number but I didn't call. My excuse was that it was late and they wouldn't know who I was anyway. I would see them at church. Then Tuesday came...

I woke up at 4a.m. Tuesday morning. That's about 30 minutes before normal. I decided to get up so I could read my Bible before going to work. I got ready then sat down and read a short devotional. I knew that wasn't what I needed to read for the day so I just asked GOD to show me something to read in the Bible. Something I needed. I really didn't finish what I was going to say and HE said Psalm 18:32. I almost said what and again I heard Psalm 18:32. I said okay and opened my Bible. This is what it says...

Psalm 18:32 (New International Version)

 32 It is God who arms me with strength
       and makes my way perfect.

I knew that GOD was just telling me that HE will give me the strength to do what HE asks me to do and it will be okay. At lunch time I went back to my car and made the phone call. When the person answered I said you probably don't know who I am but...Well, it turns out that she does know who I am and there was "four" places left!! In a way this is all very exciting because GOD really wants me to do this. If HE is in something then it will be good!! Even still, I am a little apprehensive because I get all the classic fear symptoms in these situations. I just have to remember that...

Philippians 4:13 (New King James Version)
13 I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.

We all can. We just have to meet the challenge and trust the GOD to take over and do the rest.

A while back I placed the phrase "To Know GOD Deeper" at the top of my blog. I did that because I felt that GOD was telling me that I needed to step my journey up a bit. HE is still doing that today. HE reminds me all the time that I need to do more for HIM. HE also lets me know to do that I have to come to know HIM better. Dig in and really start to read and study HIS WORD and talk to HIM more. That isn't always something that's easy to do. But I know HE will help me if I put forth the effort. There are probably people reading this that could also step it up a bit. Everyone can benefit from more time in the WORD and more time talking to GOD. It's a funny thing but if we talk to HIM, HE will talk back to us...

When I'm getting ready for work is one of the times HE chooses to talk to me. HE always speaks to me then when I am half asleep wishing I was still fully asleep! That's one way I know it's HIM because I'm not functioning well enough yet to think of things on my own! I have been asking HIM to help me to draw closer to HIM. To just give me what I call a "burning desire" to really push in towards HIM like I never have before. To start really changing me from the inside out. I don't want what I write in this blog to just be words. I want it to be a personal journey for me so when I share, it always truly comes from the heart...GOD's and mine.

On Monday, while getting ready for work, this old song popped into my head...Search Me O GOD. Not to be disrespectful but I would have to call that...a blast from my past! It's funny though, I can still remember the words. Then I remembered reading a scripture that almost says the same thing as the song. Tonight I read that Dr. James Edwin Orr wrote the words to go with the melody back in 1936. The melody came from an Aborigine song he had heard. He used this passage in Psalm as his inspiration.

Psalm 139:23-24 (King James Version)
 Search me, O God, and know my heart : try me, and know my thoughts:
 And see if there be any wicked way in me, and lead me in the way everlasting.

Since that morning I have felt some of that "burning desire" to draw closer to HIM. I know it is the HOLY SPIRIT that is making me feel this way. Tonight I came across this passage from the book of Psalm;

Psalm 25:4-5 (New King James Version)
 Show me Your ways, O LORD;
         Teach me Your paths.
 Lead me in Your truth and teach me,
         For You are the God of my salvation;
         On You I wait all the day.

Those verses are going to be a prayer that I pray everyday. Everyday we need to ask for HIS help so that we are made aware of any thing in our hearts and minds that shouldn't be there. Feelings we shouldn't have, thoughts we shouldn't have, anything that is not pleasing to GOD that we need to get out of our lives. Ask the HOLY SPIRIT to help us think good pure thoughts. Philippians 4:8 says;

Philippians 4:8 (New Living Translation)
And now, dear brothers and sisters, one final thing. Fix your thoughts on what is true, and honorable, and right, and pure, and lovely, and admirable. Think about things that are excellent and worthy of praise.

Personally, I don't think I have time to waste not pushing in closer to GOD. If I do that HE will help me to be a better witness for HIM. We all need to do everything we can to let people know about JESUS and what HE can do for them if they will accept HIM.

Have you ever noticed that when you are least expecting it...GOD shows up??!!! That seems to be how it is for me many times. There have been things I have talked to GOD about a lot and haven't really gotten an answer. Sometimes there have been things with me that I want GOD to "fix"...and HE doesn't. However, there have been many things that HE has helped me with. Things in me that HE has changed. HE is an awesome GOD!!! But...there are still things I struggle with. Things, that as a Christian, you either should or should not do. Tonight I am talking specifically about forgiveness...

For a long time it was hard for me to really get the fact that once you ask JESUS to forgive you and come into your life, that was all you needed to do. You were "forgiven" right then. What ever you had done in your past life was gone...erased. In the Bible GOD says that HE casts your sins as far as the east is from the west. HE also says HE doesn't keep a list and HE throws them into the ocean!

Psalm 103:12 (New Living Translation) He has removed our sins as far from us
      as the east is from the west.

Isaiah 43:25 (The Message) "But I, yes I, am the one
   who takes care of your sins—that's what I do.
   I don't keep a list of your sins.

Micah 7:19(b) (New King James Version)
   You will cast all our sins
    Into the depths of the sea.

This is all great news for everyone! When HE forgives us we are truly forgiven...forever! We are blessed!

Then there's the part where we have to forgive others. Most of the time that isn't a problem for me. Sometimes it takes me awhile but I know I have to do that. So...sooner or later I have gotten there with all the big ones in my life.

Mark 11:25 (New International Version)
"And when you stand praying, if you hold anything against anyone, forgive him, so that your Father in heaven may forgive you your sins."

There is still another type of forgiveness that we are expected to do. That is...Forgive ourselves for things we have done in the past.

Romans 8:1-2 (The Message)
With the arrival of Jesus, the Messiah, that fateful dilemma is resolved. Those who enter into Christ's being-here-for-us no longer have to live under a continuous, low-lying black cloud. A new power is in operation. The Spirit of life in Christ, like a strong wind, has magnificently cleared the air, freeing you from a fated lifetime of brutal tyranny at the hands of sin and death.

I like the way The Message Bible says this under a continuous, low-lying black cloud. When you can't find it within yourself to forgive yourself for something you did in your "past before CHRIST life" cause yourself all kinds of needless problems. But...if you really want to be free and live as you are meant to as a Christian, you have to come to terms with your past, forgive yourself, and put it behind you. You probably won't ever forget what you did but you don't have to be haunted by it either. I always told myself that if GOD could forgive me for what I had done that it didn't matter if I did or not. But I was wrong. Satan will use anything and everything he can to try to get you to fail. To go back to your old life. He will get in your head and remind you over and over of what you have done. When you haven't forgiven yourself what comes rolling in? That low-laying black cloud. When that's hanging over you it causes all sorts of bad things. You listen to what satan says instead of to what GOD says. He brings on all kinds of bad symptoms in your life. But then there's the flip side...

There's a phrase I really like...But GOD!!! At the beginning I said sometimes GOD shows up when you least expect HIM! It is so true. This weekend I was reading a book. It wasn't a self help book, it wasn't the Bible, it was fiction. I was really into the story and all of a sudden what I read just hit me. What a character in the book had had I. I have struggled with the pain of this for years. I have not talked to GOD about it for a long time. The great thing is...GOD talks to us about things when HE wants to! HE chooses HIS time to heal us of things in our past, not our time. When I read the sentences in this book it was as if I were reading about my own situation. The wonderful thing about it is...GOD, right then, healed me of all the pain of my past sin. For the first time that I can remember, I was able to let all the emotion out that I had held inside for so long.

GOD can and will do this for you too. It doesn't always happen immediately. GOD works on HIS time not ours. The great thing is, when HE does it you know that it is truly a...But GOD moment in your life!!

If you need a...But GOD moment in your life don't give up. Sometimes when you least expect HIM...HE shows up!! HE will change your life if you will let HIM. Call on HIM today!!

Today has been a day when I have just been thinking about the LORD's return. How wonderful it is going to be when HE comes back to get us!! From all that I read and hear in the news I believe it won't be much longer. We all need to make sure that we are ready when HE comes.

Before becoming a Christian I read the Left Behind series. It was a little unnerving because I knew that if the LORD came back then I would be "left behind". But...I wanted to know what would happen and what people on earth would be going through. Basically, I wanted to know what "I" would have to do to become one of the people that made it through the Tribulation. My thought was that I would only make it to Heaven in that way. Thankfully I don't need to worry about that anymore. My whole purpose of this blog today is this...

Now I have been reading the prequel to the Left Behind series. There are three books and they tell about the characters lives from when they were young and how they were before they were left behind. The last of the three is titled, "The Rapture". I don't wnat to ruin it for anyone that hasn't read it and will but...the Rapture takes place in this book. What I thought was so great was how the author let the Christians know it "was time"...they were going up!! HE called out their name...LOUDLY!!! Then they heard the trumpet!! Everyone heard their name called and then they were going up and seeing all the other Christians!! I don't know how it's really going to happen but if it were to happen this way how exciting that would be. All Christians everywhere hearing their own names called out at the same time.

We know that GOD is everywhere and can speak to everyone at the same time. Church's all over have services on the same times and days. People everywhere talk and pray to GOD at the same time. HE hears us all and answers us all!! It's amazing!!!!

Whatever way it happens when JESUS comes back to get us it will be sooo exciting! I don't want to miss it and neither should you. It doesn't matter what you've done or how bad you have been...You can be forgiven. You "will" be forgiven if you just call on the name of JESUS and ask HIM to forgive you and come into your heart. Don't it today. Then when HE comes back to take us home you will be going up too!!!

Matthew 24:30-44 (The Message)

 30-31"Then, the Arrival of the Son of Man! It will fill the skies—no one will miss it. Unready people all over the world, outsiders to the splendor and power, will raise a huge lament as they watch the Son of Man blazing out of heaven. At that same moment, he'll dispatch his angels with a trumpet-blast summons, pulling in God's chosen from the four winds, from pole to pole.
 32-35"Take a lesson from the fig tree. From the moment you notice its buds form, the merest hint of green, you know summer's just around the corner. So it is with you: When you see all these things, you'll know he's at the door. Don't take this lightly. I'm not just saying this for some future generation, but for all of you. This age continues until all these things take place. Sky and earth will wear out; my words won't wear out.
 36"But the exact day and hour? No one knows that, not even heaven's angels, not even the Son. Only the Father knows.
 37-39"The Arrival of the Son of Man will take place in times like Noah's. Before the great flood everyone was carrying on as usual, having a good time right up to the day Noah boarded the ark. They knew nothing—until the flood hit and swept everything away.
 39-44"The Son of Man's Arrival will be like that: Two men will be working in the field—one will be taken, one left behind; two women will be grinding at the mill—one will be taken, one left behind. So stay awake, alert. You have no idea what day your Master will show up. But you do know this: You know that if the homeowner had known what time of night the burglar would arrive, he would have been there with his dogs to prevent the break-in. Be vigilant just like that. You have no idea when the Son of Man is going to show up.

HE died for you so you can live for HIM!! Make the step today. You won't regret it!!

Do What's In Your Power

I am reposting this from the Messenger International blog site.

Do What's In Your Power

Dear Friends,
A woman in Iran urgently needs your prayers & your influence.
Her children need your compassion and active voice.

Proverbs charges us to speak up for those who have no voice.
A women condemned to die in an Iranian prison is virtually voiceless.
Her son and daughter are praying and pleading that the world’s community would lift their voices and stop the cruel execution of their innocent mother.
(see their letter below)
It is hard to imagine the possibility of a woman being stoned still exists...sadly it does.

They kept demanding an answer, so he stood up again and said, “All right, but let the one who has never sinned throw the first stone!”
John 8:7 NLT

This situation demands an answer.
Will we stand up and rise to the question.
I believe you will pause long enough to stop these stones from flying.

What if this was your mother? Sister? Or daughter?
How would you want others to respond?

Prayer? Yes certainly pray!
But what of those with the power to do more?
Wouldn’t you hope (and pray) intent and action would be added to prayer?

May each individual, family, community, church and organization do what is in their power.

You are more powerful than you know.

Below are some options/resources and links so you can exercise your influence and be part of stopping this type of atrocity.
If only a 1000 pastors motivated 100 members in their churches to write a letter...10,000 letters /emails would travel & serve as voices with the potential to stop this from happening.

To make this as easy as possible. We have included sample letters to be emailed or mailed to the following organizations:
NAVI PILLAY, UN High Commissioner for the Office of Human Rights

Please copy and used with individual names. Thank you for opening your heart to this Mother and her children.

If each of us does our possible God can do the impossible.

Messenger International

(Feel free to repost & reprint this document and use the information within however you see best.)

Two things to do:
1) Please send the sample letters adjusted per your preferences to the targeted recipients
2) Please send the children’s letter to your local newspaper with an explanation of why we need to support these children and take a stand against brutal execution in Iran.

Do not allow our nightmare become a reality,
Protest against our mother’s stoning!

Today we stretch out our hands to the people of the whole world. It is now five years that we have lived in fear and in horror, deprived of motherly love. Is the world so cruel that it can watch this catastrophe and do nothing about it?

We are Sakine Mohammadi e Ashtiani’s children, Farideh and Sajjad Mohamamadi e Ashtiani. Since our childhood we have been acquainted with the pain of knowing that our mother is imprisoned and awaiting a catastrophe. To tell the truth, the term “stoning” is so horrific that we try never to use it. We instead say our mother is in danger, she might be killed, and she deserves everyone’s help.

Today, when nearly all options have reached dead-ends, and our mother’s lawyer says that she is in a dangerous situation, we resort to you. We resort to the people of the world, no matter who you are and where in the world you live. We resort to you, people of Iran, all of you who have experienced the pain and anguish of the horror of losing a loved one.

Please help our mother return home!

We especially stretch our hand out to the Iranians living abroad. Help to prevent this nightmare from becoming reality. Save our mother. We are unable to explain the anguish of every moment, every second of our lives. Words are unable to articulate our fear…

Help to save our mother. Write to and ask officials to free her. Tell them that she doesn’t have a civil complainant and has not done any wrong. Our mother should not be killed. Is there any one hearing this and rushing to our assistance?

SAMPLE LETTER TO NAVI PILLAY, UN High Commissioner for the Office of Human Rights:

Send to:, with copies to:,,
MAIL to: Office of the United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights (OHCHR), Palais des Nations, CH-1211 Geneva 10, Switzerland

Dear Ms. Pillay,

I am writing to you with an urgent demand that you intervene with the authorities in the Islamic Republic of Iran, who are preparing to execute by stoning Sakine Mohammadi e Ashtiani. Stoning is a barbaric form of torture and execution that should be outlawed worldwide. It is your responsibility to step in and demand a halt to these proceedings.

The children of Ms. Mohammadi e Ashtiana have written a letter in her defense, and have issued a call to the world asking for help. Their letter is here; I suggest you read it, and then act according to their heartrending demands.

Dear Ms. Westphal and Ms. Krimitsas,

I am writing to you with an urgent request that you intervene with the authorities in the Islamic Republic of Iran, who are preparing to execute by stoning Sakine Mohammadi e Ashtiani. Stoning is a barbaric form of torture and execution that should be outlawed worldwide. Multilateral organizations have thus far refused to step in and put a halt to the criminal actions perpetrated by the Islamic Republic. Your mandate encourages your organization to undertake the work of visiting prisoners in situations of internal violence, where the Geneva Conventions do not apply. I ask you to step in and demand a halt to these and other ongoing criminal and barbaric proceedings in the Islamic Republic

The children of Ms. Mohammadi e Ashtiana have written a letter in her defense, and have issued a call to the world asking for help. Their letter is here; please read it, and then act according to their heartrending demands.

[your name]
