Suffering But Growing Church

September 5th, six months in prison for ‘loving Jesus’.

Wednesday, September 2, 2009

On September 5th Maryam Rustampoor (27) and Marzieh Amirizadeh (30) will have had their freedom taken from them for six months: 184 days. When arrested the authorities did not specify the charges, however it soon became clear they were in prison because they were Christians. One prison official refused to let them join her classes because they were ‘najes’, unclean and angrily told them they should be executed for being ‘apostates’. Then on August 9th in a court hearing they were asked, ‘Are you Christian?’ and when the women said ‘We love Jesus’ followed by ‘Yes’, they were bluntly told to re-cant (see recent news August 12th). Maryam and Marzieh and at least eight other Christians remain in prison. Apart from the stress of prison, both have suffered from ill health without proper medical attention. Despite this, whenever news of their condition is reported, it is said their spirits are strong and they believe they are in God’s will.
Pray for:

For the case of Maryam and Marzieh to challenge the whole Muslim world on its attitude to apostates
Government officials to be disturbed that they oppose Christ’s followers
For the release of Maryam and Marzieh and all those unjustly imprisoned – with compensation.
