Update: Movement on Pastor Youcef – Iranian Christian facing execution

Refusing to renounce his faith in Christ may cost him his life.

Last September, we asked you to pray and ask Secretary of State Hillary Clinton to request the Iranian government stop any attempt to execute Pastor Youcef Nadarkhani and to offer asylum to him and his family.

When asked to “repent” by Iranian judges, Youcef stated, “Repent means to return. What should I return to? To the blasphemy that I had before my faith in Christ?” The judges replied, “To the religion of your ancestors, Islam.” To which he replied, “I cannot.”

At last report, Pastor Youcef remains in prison and is awaiting judgment by the Iranian government. Still, Pastor Youcef faces execution any day.

Last week, US Representative Joe Pitts introduced House Resolution 556, “Condemning the Government of Iran for its continued persecution, imprisonment, and sentencing of Youcef Nadarkhani on the charge of apostasy.”

It is critical that you continue to pray for Pastor Youcef.

TAKE ACTION

International pressure continues to help keep Pastor Youcef alive. If a large majority of Congress supports this new bipartisan resolution, it could have a significant impact on pressuring Iran for Pastor Youcef’s release.

Send an email now and encourage your representative to co-sponsor and support the resolution in support of Pastor Youcef.

It is very important that you forward this alert to your friends and family members.
