Youcef Nardarkhani
in jail 1010 days


Dear Friends 



Please continue to pray for Pastor Youcef Nadarkhani who today will be serving his 1010th day in jail on apostasy charges.  


Although there has been continued diplomatic pressure on the Iranian government, most recently in a letter from the U.S. State Department demanding his release, we have yet to see his release.  New reports indicate that he may be facing new and different charges in a September 8 trial, although details remain scarce.  Read more here


In addition to Pastor Nadarkhani, the Iranian government is holding numerous other Christian believers who have been accused of a variety of offenses, including apostasy, threatening national security, among others.  Please pray for the safety of our brothers and sisters in Iran who are incarcerated for their faith and pray especially for the efforts of our advocates living in countries who have favorable diplomatic relationship with Iran to have their governments put pressure on the Iranian government. 


Please continue to join with us in praying that true justice will be done in this case and for the pastor's unconditional release and pardon.  Pray also for Youcef and his family, that regardless of the outcome, they will remain strong in the Lord.   


May the Lord bless and keep you in His perfect. . .


Grace and Peace,
