We rejoice to announce that, after 259 days in detention, Iranian Christians Maryam Rustampoor and Marzieh Amirizadeh were released from Evin prison on Wednesday November 18, 2009 at 3:30pm without bail. Elam Ministries notes that “they may yet have to face a court hearing and still need our prayers.”
“Words are not enough to express our gratitude to the Lord and to His people who have prayed and worked for our release," Elam quoted them as saying.
Thank you to all who have been praying for these young ladies for the past nine months. Join us and others around the world in praying:
- For their health to be fully restored.
- For their continued safety.
- For their full acquittal.
Please feel free to post your prayers and praise on our Persecuted Church Prayer Wall.
