Good news: Christian prisoner set free!

Dear friends,

It is with delight that I can share with you that Rasoul Abdollahi was released from Rajai Shahr prison in Iran on 18 February 2015 .

Rasoul was serving a three-year sentence related to his Christian ministry, but has now been released, and can return home to his wife and two children. 

Initially arrested on 26 December 2010 as part of a mass crackdown on Christians, Rasoul was held in detention and interrogated for over two months before being released on bail. He was later tried in court for his Christian activities and he began serving his unjust sentence on 2 December 2013 in Evin prison. He was subsequently moved to the more brutual Rajai Shahr in Karaj in October 2014.

His release is wonderful news. Please take a moment to praise God. Please also pray for Rasoul and his family as they are reunited and start to rebuild their lives. And finally, please pray for the release of the many other Christian prisoners who remain incarcerated.

Yours in Christ,

David Yeghnazar
