EuropeNews: Two Christian Converts are Still Imprisoned by Iran

Maryam and Marzieh are Iranian Christian converts from Islam to Christianity have been kept in Iranian prison for the past four months. The reason for their imprisonment is their decision to follow Jesus Christ. Please pray for their release.

The two Iranian Christian women, Maryam Rustampoor (27) and Marzieh Amirizadeh (30) continue to be held in Evin prison in Iran because of their Christian faith, unfairly labeled as ‘anti-government activists’, because of the hostility of the government towards practising Christians.
In the aftermath of the political turmoil in Iran, they are now in danger of being forgotten. One church leader from Iran said, “With so many hundreds of protestors now in the prison system, Maryam and Marzieh are likely to be forgotten.”

Please also consider Maryam and Marzieh in prison at:
Evin Prison
Saadat Abad
Islamic Republic of Iran

Please note
When writing a letter, never mention the name of the source of your information or the name of any organization such as Voice of the Martyrs or Prisoner Alert. It is not dangerous for a prisoner to receive letters from individuals, but if an organization is mentioned they may be accused of links with ‘foreign organizations’ and receive harsher sentences. Also, please do not state anything negative about their government.
