Appeal Granted; Christian in Iran Released from Prison

After serving ten months in Iran’s Evin prison for Christian activities, we rejoice that Mostafa Mohammad Bordbar was released on Nov. 3, 2013 and acquitted of all charges. We celebrate and

Bordbar
Set free!
are so thankful for the consistent prayers of our members and the many letters sent. Prisoner Alert recorded that government officials were emailed 108 times and 855 encouraging letters were written. Mostafa was arrested on Dec. 27, 2012 for “attending an illegal gathering and participating in a house church.” He was sentenced to ten years imprisonment in July. Mostafa’s lawyer appealed and in a scheduled hearing on Oct. 30, the court decided to withdraw all charges.

Praise the Lord for this answer to prayer. Feel free to go to Mostafa's profile on PrisonerAlert and write an email of thanks to Iran's President or Supreme Leader (click on the link to "Petition Official").

There are still more than 40 Christians in prison in Iran, with several more on PrisonerAlert that you can write letters of encouragement to.
