Dear Friends and Partners,

In 2004, Rev. Majed El Shafie founded One Free World International. It has been through your partnership and standing with us that we have been able to continue the vision of One Free World International for 10 years! As we have stood with the persecuted and the oppressed, fulfilling the will and call of God, we have seen many challenges over the years, but also many victories! We are humbled and grateful for each opportunity that we have been given to fight for those that have no voice.

Now, we would like to invite each one of you to join us as we celebrate One Free World International's 10th Anniversary on Sunday, March 30, 2014, 10:00am-12:30pm at Toronto Airport Christian Fellowship (Catch the Fire) 272 Attwell Drive, Toronto, ON M9W 6M3.

Moses Znaimer and VisionTV Proudly Present the Canadian Broadcast Premiere of the Award-Winning Human Rights Documentary FREEDOM FIGHTER on Monday, March 31st at 10 p.m. ET / 7 p.m. PT.

In 1998, Majed El Shafie was arrested, tortured and sentenced to death in Egypt because of his Christian faith. Now, he devotes his life to fight for those persecuted around the world.

Toronto, Ontario (PRWEB) March 13, 2014 -- VisionTV has announced the Canadian broadcast premiere of FREEDOM FIGHTER, the story of Rev. Majed El Shafie’s incredible life and exceptional courage. The awardwinning documentary will air in its entirety on Monday, March 31st at 10 p.m. ET / 7 p.m. PT.

Majed El Shafie was born a member of the Egyptian Muslim elite. When he converted to Christianity, he was arrested, tortured, and sentenced to die in Egypt because of his faith. Narrowly escaping to Israel on a jet ski, he arrived in Canada 12 years ago as a UN sponsored refugee. From a Persecuted Fugitive, Majed El Shafie became a Rescuer of the Oppressed through the human rights organization he founded called One Free World International.

Today, Majed El Shafie writes, speaks, lobbies and travels to the riskiest parts of the world to witness and reveal the grave injustices still being perpetrated against people of faith in today’s world, whether that be Christians and Jews in the Middle East, Muslims in China and Myanmar, and Baha’is and Zoroastrians in Iran. In FREEDOM FIGHTER, we hear his interviews with victims who recount stories of threats, rape, torture, merciless beatings, slave labour camps, and organ harvesting; we see Majed El Shafie going to the front lines in Iraq, Afghanistan and Islamabad, Pakistan where he undertakes a dangerous mission to rescue a persecuted family of seven to Canada, including a three-year-old girl who was raped and abused because her Father refused to convert to Islam.

Directed by Chris Atkins, the documentary also features special guests including Jason Kenney, Minister of Employment and Social Development and Minister for Multiculturalism, and Mario Silva, former MP and 2013 Chair, International Holocaust Remembrance Alliance. Majed El Shafie regularly testifies before the U.S. Congress and the Canadian Parliament and Senate, and he's a frequent guest on news outlets worldwide, including TheBlaze TV’s Glenn Beck, FOX News Radio, Mike Huckabee Show, Phil Valentine, Laura Ingraham, CBN News, CBC, Sun News Network, CTV News and many more.

FREEDOM FIGHTER is available now on DVD from Destiny Image Films. A companion book, FREEDOM FIGHTER: One Man's Fight for One Free World, is also available wherever books are sold. For more information, visit freedomfighterdvd.com.

Remember that the persecuted Christians are dying every day, but they are still smiling. They are in a very deep dark night, but they have the candle of the Lord. The enemy can have a very strong weapon and a very strong army, but we have the Lord Almighty.

"They can kill the dreamer, but they cannot kill the dream" in the Lord’s name.

Be with God and may God be with you.
