Please pray for him. (Photo: Mohabat News)
In April 2010, a Behnam Irani was arrested following a raid on his home in Karaj where approximately 10 young men newly converted to Christianity had gathered for fellowship and Bible study. Officers later entered his home and confiscated most of his personal belongings, including pictures, cameras, computers, Bibles, and other Christian literature (for more information, click here). He was eventually sentenced to one year imprisonment for “propaganda against the regime.”
According to local sources, there is concern that Behnam may be charged with apostasy.
- Pray that Behnam will remain strong in his faith.
- Pray that he will have opportunity to share the gospel with others.
- Pray that this ruling will be reversed and that he will be freed from prison.
- Pray for other Iranian Christians facing imprisonment for their faith in Christ.
