Awhile back, I posted a prayer request about two Christian women jailed in Iran for their faith. I am glad to post some good news about them. Maryam Rostampour, 28, and Marzieh Amirizadeh, 31, are now free, released to another, undisclosed nation. For almost nine months the two Iranian Christian women were held in the notorious Evin prison in Tehran for refusing to deny their faith. But on May 24, their ordeal came to an end, according to Open Doors USA:
May this praise report encourage you to intercede all the more for our imprisoned brothers and sisters.
Acquitted and free ... Fourteen months after they were arrested for their Christian faith and activities, they have been acquitted of all charges by Iranian judicial authorities. But they were warned that any future Christian activity in Iran will be seriously dealt with, according to Elam Ministries. On Saturday they left Iran and arrived safely in another country, reported Elam.
“Praise the Lord for the great news of their acquittal and freedom in another country,” said Open Doors USA President/CEO Dr. Carl Moeller. “Literally millions of Christians around the world have been praying for them. Their future still is uncertain. So we must keep these two brave women in our prayers...and all the Christians who are imprisoned in Iran and in other countries."
