Jailed Iranian Christians set free!

I was out of the country and both extremely busy and away from consistent internet access for about 4 months, but I thought it fitting to resume my (somewhat sporadic) blogging right where I left off; with news about Maryam Rustampoor and Marzieh Amirizadeh, the two Iranian women were unjustly imprisoned in Iran.

"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.” [Perscuted Church blog]

Amen amen!!
