Christian Convert Previously Arrested Now Released On Bail

An Iranian Christian named Jamshid Derakhshan who had been arrested on November 30th 2018 in Karaj has been ‘temporarily released on bail since December 16th 2018’. He had been arrested during a house search while a church gathering were meeting in his home.  He has had a difficult time as a believer.  He came to Christ over thirty years ago and has since been summoned to court three times and fired from his job as an aviation officer.  Please pray for him and for other believers like him who face tremendous persecution that they would know Christ’s comfort and remain steadfast, ‘…The Lord is on my side I will not fear. What can man do to me?’ Ps 118v6
