Iranian Christians Held Without Charges

Three Iranian Christians were arrested on January 21. Jamal Ghalishorani and his wife Nadereh Jamali after arresting Hamik Khachikian about half an hour before. Jamal and his wife are converts out of Islam and this is a "crime" (in Muslim eyes) that is punishable with death.

These three arrests are only a few in a large tidal wave of arrests on Christians in Iran. They appear to be apart of a "concerted, nationwide government plan" to put pressure on believers.

Please pray that the believers will be overcomers while going through this pressure.
