Encourage Nasser in Iran

Iran is a dangerous place to follow Jesus. Christians who evangelise to Muslims can be thrown in prison and converts from Islam can be sentenced to death. Arrests continue to rise as authorities try to stamp out Christianity.

Nasser is currently serving a 10 year sentence after being arrested in 2016. He was charged with “acting against national security” and “missionary activities”.

The judge who sentenced Nasser gave him the maximum prison sentence for the charges because Nasser boldly spoke about his faith throughout the trial. 

“Nasser was audacious enough to look into my eyes and declare his Christian faith,” the judge said. “If he had at least denied it, or expressed regret for his Christian activities, I would have reduced the sentence.”

Nasser recently wrote from prison, “I thank God in perfect joy and peace for considering me worthy to be here because of my faith and witness to Jesus Christ.”

Imprisonment can result in significant trauma and isolation for believers.

Please pray that that all those imprisoned will hold fast to Christ and write to encourage Nasser.

Please send cards and letters by 5 July to PO Box 51236 Tawa, Wellington 5249
