I did an interview last year with an Iranian Christian friend of mine who lives in Lansing. My friend converted from Islam when living in Iran and thus had to become a refugee to escape those trying to kill him, namely his father. You can read the interview here: After Death Threats from Muslims in Lansing, Post Deleted, Reposted Anonymously. In the article I mention my friend’s pastor from Iran, the man who led him to Christ and who was now serving a prison sentence for being a Christian pastor, Pastor Farshid Fathi. Pastor Fathi’s arrest and imprisonment is the event that led my friend to flee Iran on the week of his own wedding as a refugee.
For those who read that interview, I wanted to share the great news that according to BosNewsLife, Pastor Farshid Fathi was released from prison this week! You can read the details of his release in the BosNewsLife article here.
Praise God! Be in prayer for Pastor Fathi and his family. And continue to pray for American citizen Pastor Saeed who is still being illegally imprisoned in Iran.
