Update On Pastor Youcef Nadarkhani

Pastor Youcef Nadarkhani (husband of Fatema Pasindedih and father of two boys - Daniel, 9 and Yoel, 7) was arrested over 2 years ago on charges of apostasy - he converted from Islam when he was 19. and will not recant his commitment to Christianity. Iranian courts have found him guilty and condemned him to death.

Congress may be voting today on House Resolution 556, which condemns the Iranian government for their decision to execute this man, and calls for his immediate release.

GOOD NEWS: Iranian Pastor Youcef is still alive as no execution order has been issued as yet. International pressure seems to be working (a little) on the Iranian authorities

BAD NEWS: Pastor Youcef is still in prison with this judgment still hanging over him. The Iraian government usually acts quickly in death penalty cases, and he could be executed at any time - without further notification or appeal.

Please keep praying for this brother in Christ, and his family:
