The same believers recently convicted of crimes against the order have now been charged with blasphemy and are facing trial:
1. Behrouz Sadegh-Khandjani
2. Mehdi Furutan
3. Mohammad Beliad
4. Parviz Khalaj
5. Nazly Beliad
The trial will take place sometime during the week of April 2nd in Shiraz. In Iran, the week starts on Saturday, after the Islamic day of worship. Please keep these brothers and sister in earnest prayer. They have already been sentenced to one year in prison for the previous charge.
Matthias Haghnejad will also go on trial in several weeks, either in Bander-e-Anzali or Rasht, for actions against the Islamic Order. They are stating in his charges that he is seeking to spread corruption, which means that he is preaching the Gospel.
Brother Youcef Nadarkhani remains in prison awaiting the ruling on his appeal. Please continue to contact your local government officials about Youcef. It is important that the Iranian government not think that he is forgotten. Remember to keep him in constant prayer. He is not alone; there is One who is always with him! We must stand with him in faith, believing for his deliverance. Also remember his wife and two sons as there are many needs that they have. We are praying and trusting that Jehovah Jireh will provide all that they have need of.
