Here's Pastor Youcef's letter that was sent to us by Present Truth Ministries:
Not to us, LORD, not to us, but to Your Name be glory, for Your faithfulness, for Your loyalty... Psalm 115:1Salaam ! (Peace be upon you !)I glorify and give grace to the Lord with all my heart. I am grateful for all the blessings that He gave me during my whole life. I am especially grateful for His goodness and divine protection that characterised the time of my detention.I also want to express my gratitude towards those who, all around the world, have worked for my cause, or should I say the cause that I defend. I want to express my gratitude to all of those who have supported me, openly or in complete secrecy. You are all very dear to my heart. May the Lord bless you and give you His perfect and sovereign Grace.Indeed I have been put to the test, the test of faith which is, according to the Scriptures "more precious than perishable gold." But I have never felt loneliness, I was all the time aware of the fact that it wasn't a solitary battle, for I have felt all the energy and support of those who obeyed their conscience and fought for the promotion of the justice and the rights of all human beings. Thanks to these efforts, I have now the enormous joy to be by my wonderful wife and my children. I am grateful for these people through whom God has been working. All of this is very encouraging.During that period, I had the opportunity to experience in a marvellous way the Scripture that says: "Indeed, as the sufferings of Christ abound for us, our encouragement abound through Christ.." He has comforted my family and has given them the means to face that difficult situation. In His Grace, He provided for their spiritual and material needs, taking away from me a heavy weight.
