Rifqa Bary is a 17-year-old girl who was coached to leave her home in Columbus, OH, on July 19, 2009. A church group helped her going to Florida. Pastor Blake Lorenz and his wife illegally kept her at their home for 2 and a half week and did not inform authorities of Florida. On August 8, 2009, the pastor called DCF and finally informed that he had this girl. DCF did not take any action and left her with this couple for 2 more days. On August 10th before handing over Rifqa to DCF, coached her to give statement against her father on video. According to Florida law, nobody can keep a minor for more than 24 hours without having custody rights. To this date, no actions have been taken against this pastor Lorenz and his wife for their alleged crime. Instead the father has been drilled for a crime that he never even imagined.
Several false allegations are made against the father, but so far he has been clear by all authorities and police department.
Bary's are desperately waiting to get united with their beloved daughter. Please help them by spreading this message. Please keep them in your prayer.
