Iran Update – Arrest of Behnam Irani

As we reported last week pastor Behnam Irani had been convicted of actions against the Order. Which means he organized house church meetings and other Christian activities. I have learned that around 2 AM Central Standard Time, 11AM in Iran, he was summoned for a meeting with the security service and subsequently arrested.

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.

Behrouz Sadegh-Khandjani, who is in prison in Shiraz, will finally come to trial on February 5th. Please pray for him and for his family. Satan is doing all that he can through the government of Iran to destroy the lives of Christians.
Youcef Nadarkhani remains in prison in Lakan province in northern Iran. His status has not changed. He continues to be under the death sentence for apostasy. He is waiting for the supreme court to either strike down or certify the sentencing. Continue to pray for him and his family.

In Christ,
