Maryam and Marzieh: cleared of one charge, but two remain

Tuesday, October 13, 2009

Last week, Maryam Rostampour and Marzieh Amirzadeh, in prison now for over seven months solely for their faith in Christ, were called into revolutionary court without warning. The judge told them they faced three charges: anti-state activities; propagation of the Christian faith; and apostasy from Islam. Unlike their previous judges who had been indifferent to them, this judge has a more sympathetic attitude. He cleared them of the charge of anti-state activities which was a huge encouragement to Maryam and Marzieh. Their case will now be transferred to the general court to determine what happens with the remaining two charges. While in prison the two women have both endured solitary confinement and suffered poor health. Recently Maryam was sick with food poisoning. Their determination to remain faithful to Jesus in the face of persecution has been a great inspiration to their brothers and sisters in Iran. Pray for Sympathetic judges in the general court Maryam and Marzieh’s acquittal from both remaining charges Iranian believers to know the strength of the Lord as they follow him daily
