Nine believers who have spent nearly three years in prison have been released while their sentences are under review. The believers were arrested in Jan. and Feb. 2019 and later sentenced to five years’ imprisonment for “acting against national security.” But in Nov. 2021, the Iranian Supreme Court ordered a review of their sentences and stated that participating in house churches is not a crime against national security. Pray that these believers will be acquitted following the review. Pray that the court’s decision will lead to freedom for other Christians in Iran who remain in prison.
