Act Now on Behalf of Pastor Nadarkhani
Pastor Youcef Nadarkhani is currently in prison awaiting execution in Iran for converting from Islam to Christianity. Christian organisations, individuals and national politicians in various countries have been lobbying hard for Nadarkhani's release. However, reports have surfaced in the last day indicating his sentence has been confirmed and he could now be executed at any moment. Christian lobby groups are urging everyone to act now to put Iran under intense pressure to stop this from happening. For advice on how to get involved visit the Christian Solidarity Worldwide website. In the meantime it is essential for Christians everywhere to pray for Pastor Nadarkhani, together with his young family, during this desperate time.
