As we reported in January pastor Behnam Irani had been convicted of actions against the Order. Which means he organized house church meetings and other Christian activities. It was communicated to him that he would begin to serve his sentence shortly and on Tuesday he was taken into custody and is now in prison serving an 8 month sentence.
As a reminder, pastor Behnam, is a husband and father of two. Please spread the word to pray for his release, for his strength to endure for Jesus and for peace for his family. Also, please spread the word to your elected officials to take action.
Youcef Nadarkhani remains in prison in Lakan province in northern Iran. He continues to be under the death sentence for apostasy. Earlier this week we were informed that a decision has been reached in his case. However, no one has been informed as to what that decision is. Please pray for him and his family. Pra that his faith would stand firm regardless of this circumstance. Pray that the power of the Holy Spirit would work with him in prison to be a witness of the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ.
