IRAN - Christmas vacations for imprisoned Christians and recent early releases from prison in Iran raise hopes that the situation for converts may improve in the future. Pray for this! Christians in Iran who have converted from Islam are often wrongly found guilty as enemies of the state and imprisoned. We have hope that the testimony of the imprisoned will not be without any consequence and that the guards, prosecutors and judges will realize that these brothers and sisters do not deserve to be imprisoned. God can also grant that their faith will be contagious, as it was with Paul, Silas and the jailer of Philippi.
