Government Arrests Five Christian Women

[226] prayers in [15] nations have been posted for Ruhsari.

Five Christian women, all converts from Islam, were arrested in Iran recently. Ruhsari Kamberi, 65, was arrested shortly before Christmas 2018 and faced 10 days of intense interrogation. She was charged with acting against national security and released on bail. She is required to meet with a religious leader for “instruction” and to be given the opportunity to return to Islam. Little is known about the other four women arrested on the same day. Pray for Ruhsari, who is reportedly very upset by her prison experience, and pray for the peace and comfort of the other women.
