*** Overseas Mission Focus: Iran
A Christian woman in Iran has begun serving a one-year prison sentence
in one of Iran’s most notorious prisons.
Authorities arrested Fatemah and charged her with ‘propaganda against the regime.’
Fatemah was sentenced when she attempted to file a complaint about being assaulted on a bus.
According to an eye witness, a woman insulted Fatemah for not wearing her headscarf ‘properly’,
then shoved her and hit her in the face.
The attacker was not charged!
This is not an isolated account of Christians being targeted.
*** that the Lord will encourage, strengthen and protect Fatemah during her prison sentence;
that other Christians in prison will support each other.
*** that the government is Iran will change so they respect freedom of religion
and that Christians will be allowed to worship Jesus openly.
*** that despite current restrictions, Christians in Iran will hold firmly to their faith
and continue to follow Jesus, strengthened and protected by our faithful God and led by the Holy Spirit.
*** RESILIENT FAITH =
WALKING IN KINGDOM LIGHT WITH JESUS, EMPOWERED BY THE HOLY SPIRIT,
AS AN AGENT OF CHANGE; FILLED WITH ENDURING HOPE
AND WITH A BIBLICAL WORLDVIEW OF GOD'S LOVE
