Iranian Christian convert refused bail

An Iranian Christian convert named Hadi Asgari aged forty who was convicted of acting against national security ‘through evangelism and sentenced to ten years imprisonment and a two-year ban from departing the country’[1] has been denied bail.

His family worked tirelessly to attempt to enable him to be released for Persian New Year, but this was denied, and officials decided to review his case after the New Year.

Pray that he and his family would know God’s presence and strength at this difficult time.  ‘Even though I am afflicted and needy.  Still the Lord takes thought and is mindful of me’.
