IRAN: Jailed Pastor's Bible Seized

Date of Bulletin: 23 April 2014

Iranian authorities recently confiscated a Bible and several Christian books from Pastor Behnam Irani, who is serving a five-year sentence on two separate convictions of "crimes against national security." Prisoners are supposed to be allowed religious materials in their cell, regardless of their religion.

The pastor is currently recovering from a February 2014 abdominal surgery. You can write an encouraging letter to Pastor Behnam Irani at

Please Pray!

  • Please pray for Pastor Behnam as he recovers from surgery.
  • Pray also for his family; the pastor has a wife and two young children.
  • Pray that the Scripture he has hidden in his heart will be a comfort to him as he serves his sentence.

The Voice of the Martyrs helps Christians in Iran by providing Farsi Bibles and by supporting Christian satellite broadcasts.
