Suffering But Growing Church

New prison sentences received

Wednesday, November 21, 2018

Saheb Fadaei and Fatimeh Bakhteri have received prison sentences of 18 and 12 months respectively for "spreading propaganda against the regime." It is written in the verdict that for Christians to claim that Jesus is Lord and that the Bible is their final authority can be perceived as an attack against Islam. Saheb was additionally sentenced to 2 years’ internal exile in Nehbandan County, close to the border with Afghanistan. The lawyer representing Saheb and Fatimeh is appealing the sentences. Saheb is already serving a 10-year sentence in Evin Prison, Tehran, along with fellow believers pastor Yousef Nadarkhani, Mohammadreza Omidi and Yaser Mosibzadeh.  Please pray that: The Lord will encourage and strengthen Saheb and Fatimeh, despite the injustices they face. The Lord will bless and use Saheb, Yousef, Mohammadreza and Yaser while they are held in Evin Prison. (Source: Middle East Concern)
