Suffering But Growing Church

Evin prison, Tehran, temporary address for at least eight Christians

Thursday, September 10, 2009

As well as Maryam Rustampoor and Marzieh Amirizadeh Esmaeilabad (see last week’s entry here) the FCNN website reports that six other Christians from the north of Tehran have also been taken to Evin Prison. Like Maryam and Marzieh, they have faced rigorous interrogation and periods in solitary confinement. The names of the six are: Maryam Razandi, Ashraf Omidi, Mehdi Mohammadi, Nariman Sharifi, Shahin, and Shahnam Yar-Mohammad Tosaki. There are reports that another Christian, Mobina Lak, has been released, temporarily. These are the known Christians in Evin, there might well be others. As with Maryam and Marzieh it would seem the sole reason for their imprisonment, and the torture of solitary confinement, is their Christian faith. Conditions in the cells are crowded which makes health a key prayer request, especially as medical facilities are limited. Pray for Health – spiritual and physical of all detained Speedy release for all detainees and apology for wrongful arrest Many other prisoners to be reached with the Gospel
