Pastor Behnam Irani

Pastor Behnam Irani has spent the past six years behind bars serving time for "crimes against national security" -- namely, for leading a house church and sharing his faith. (To review a previous report on his case, click here.)

It has been reported that Behnam is experiencing poor health, his existing medical issues exacerbated by the abuse he suffered at the hands of prison guards and fellow inmates. Please continue to pray for Behnam, who thankfully has been reunited with his wife and children.
