Let's tell it like it is. The country of Iran is backward in thinking and barbaric in practice. And Christians who live there are at risk for their lives. Then add to the fact that these women are also leaders and one is also a pastor in her community, and you have an explosive situation.
Please pray for Ms Sakineh Mohammadi Ashtiani and Pastor Youcef Nadarkhani. And as Jesus tells us to pray for those who persecute Christians, please also pray for these misguided souls in Iran and other places in the world who are willing to destroy, maim, and kill in the name of their god.
Grace and Peace,
