Release International sources state that Pastor Behnam Irani's health remains a significant issue although he continues to be positive and strong in the Lord. He is reported to be suffering from a skin condition that prevents him from going outside, as well as back and eyesight problems. Please also include in your prayers the housing needs of his family. (Added note: There are concerns that even if he completes his prison sentence, the authorities may attempt to keep him detained indefinitely under the charge of being "an apostate.")

Thank you for remembering to pray for the release of Pastor Behnam Irani, Pastor Saeed Abedini and other Iranian Christians who are imprisoned for their faith. May God sustain them and their families as they face extremely difficult circumstances.
