IRAN: Christian Arrests Increase

Front-Line Workers in Iran report an increase in the number of Christians being arrested, partly due to regional tensions and conflicts. “Persecution against Iranian Christians is rising,” a Front-Line Worker said. “Every Christmas and Easter, officials usually arrest some Christians, but this year the number went way up, and we’re concerned about what might occur around Easter.” The worker mentioned that in the past, Iranian officials would occasionally arrest church leaders and later release them with a strong suggestion that the Christians leave the country. “But now the officials are holding onto people’s passports and regularly keeping them detained,” the Front-Line Worker said. “Please pray that God will make Believers invisible to Iranian authorities.” Pray that Believers would be bold despite these difficulties.
