Maryam Rostampour and Marziyeh Amirizadeh were jailed for 8 months i.e. 259 days in one of Iran’s most notorious and dangerous prisons because of their Christian faith. Born and raised as Muslims in Islam dominated country, both of them grew unsatisfied with the teachings, principles of the Islam and converted to Christianity after their personal encounters with Jesus. Captive in Iran bookAfter their encounter with the Living God, Marziyeh and Maryam dedicated several years distributing Bibles and talking about Jesus in Tehran. They were arrested in 2009 for promoting Christianity, and were ordered to renounce their christian faith or face death. Refusing to turn back from Christ, they spent almost a year in the women’s ward of Evin Prison, where they had to endure the harsh effects of Islamic law on women.

After international pressure from United Nations and Human Rights groups, they were released from jail. However, they left Iran to continue the Lord’s work in united states. They both authored a Book named ‘Captive In Iran’.

They spent several years in Tehran distributing the new testament Bibles to the local people. We spent time going to malls to talk to people and tell them about Jesus. There were days, where we had more than 1000’s of new testaments in our basements. We later started two underground house churches to  minister to people.

Today their book is a blessing to many to know about one of the darkest places for christians. We pray that God would use them mightily for his Glory.

    • Amen. Best of times yet to come because though we will suffer trials and tribulations. We also take heart for Jesus has overcome the world. Peace He gives us. Not as the world gives . He gives us His Shalom. That we should take heart and not fear. I’ve heard it for a while now. I’ve only starting to see how rich and true and freeing His very Words are. In Him is Life. I pray Godspeed for even greater works than these many more will do. Passing on His Love through His Word and care through those who will dare to love the loveless. Truly we are called to walk like Him after His Imagine after His likeness Amen and amen.
