Suffering But Growing Church

Solitary confinement cell, ‘like a grave’

Saturday, June 27, 2009

As Iran remains deeply divided over the election results, two Christian women Marzieh Amirizadeh (30) and Maryam Rustampoor (27) continue to suffer in prison for their stand for Christ. They are in danger of being lost in the system, now overwhelmed by over two thousand detained protesters.
In the last few days six hundred other women have entered the section of Evin prison where they are being held. Arrested on March 5th 2009 both women have suffered ill health; both have spent time in two by two meter cells in solitary confinement which one of them described as being ‘like in a grave.’; and both have been told by prison officials that they deserve to die because they are ‘apostates’ from Islam.
They are not the only Christians suffering. According to FCNN, on May 21st five Christians gathering for Bible Study were arrested by plain clothes policeman. Their whereabouts are unknown. All Christians are concerned about the new Islamic penal code going through parliament which stipulates execution for male apostates, and life imprisonment for females.

Maryam, Marzieh, other Christians and all those unjustly
Rejection by parliament of the clauses in the new penal code making death for apostasy mandatory
Christians to be brave witnesses
