THEY'RE FREE!

See what happens when the children of God pray?!

Read the email that I received yesterday!
From our friends at ELAM:
------
RELEASED!  Maryam and Marzieh set free after 259 days in prison

Praise the Lord! Maryam Rustampoor and Marzieh Amirizadeh were released from 
Evin prison in Iran today, Wednesday November 18, 2009 at 3:30pm, without bail. 
However, they may yet have to face a court hearing and still need our prayers.

“Words are not enough to express our gratitude to the Lord and to His people who 
have prayed and worked for our release," they said.

Maryam and Marzieh were arrested because of their Christian faith on March 5, 
2009. Though their health has suffered greatly while in prison, they are doing 
as well as could be expected, and are rejoicing in the Lord’s faithfulness to 
them.

“Maryam and Marzieh have greatly inspired us all. Their love for the Lord Jesus 
and their faithfulness to God has been an amazing testimony,” says Sam 
Yeghnazar, Director of Elam Ministries.

We hope to share more details soon.

In the mean time, please pray:

-  For their health to be fully restored.
-  For their continued safety.
-  For their full acquittal.
HALLELUJAH!!! (dance, dance, dance) Let's continue to lift them up before the Lord in prayer! I pray that all of us are strengthened by this powerful testimony! To God be the glory!
