Your faithfulness is such an example. Your wife’s strength is, also. I have no words to express my sorrow at your continued imprisonment. God bless you and keep you and your family. You are truly keeping Christmas. ~ Jane
May The Lord Jesus strengthen your heart and mind as you suffer during this time of imprisonment and separation from your family. Please know you are deeply loved and prayed over.
“The grace of The Lord Jesus Christ be with your spirit. Amen
God Bless you,
Over these past few years, I have heard about your faith and strength as you are in prison. Your suffering is not in vain, like the apostle Paul, your imprisonment has served not only the Lord, but the people and country that you love. Like Paul you have done all that you can if it means that they would all receive eternal life through Christ Jesus’ work on the cross. I know that you have that same love for your countries of Iran and America as Paul did for his fellow Jews as well as the Gentiles. Your perseverance, strength, and love for the Lord is beautiful and encouraging. I pray that you will be released to be with your wife and raise your two children together, once again. I pray that you continue to stay strong not only spiritually but also mentally and physically. I pray that your wife and children, your parents, and all of those closest to you will continue to be strong in this time. I pray that those who do not know Jesus as their personal savior would continue to see your light shine and would question you on how they can have that same light. It may seem dark, but continue to remember the love that Christ has shown you and the change that he has made in you. “I have loved you with an everlasting love; therefore I have continued my faithfulness to you.” Jeremiah 31:3 “Nor height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God in Christ Jesus our Lord.” Romans 8:39. Nothing can separate you from His love, and He will never leave you. Right now may not seem peaceful, but “I have told you these things, so that in me you may have peace. In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world.” John 16:33and “For he who is in you is greater than he who is in the world.” 1 John 4:4 Thank you for your life and testimony, and know that I am thinking of you.
Your friend and sister in the Lord Jesus Christ,
Ashley. – My personal life verse, Psalm 24:1 “The earth is the Lord’s and everything in it; the world and all who live in it.”
What a WONDERFUL example you are giving to the Body of CHRIST and to the unbelievers, alike. May we all do as well as you when our times of testing come.
Hear the GREAT SHEMA, the WORDS of Our LORD JESUS CHRIST:
“The FIRST of all the commandments is Hear, O Israel: The LORD our GOD is ONE LORD. I+ and My+ FATHER are ONE.
And thou shalt love The LORD thy GOD with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind, and with all thy strength.
This is the FIRST and Great Commandment.
And the second is like unto it: thou shalt love thy neighbor as thyself.
On these two commandments hang all the Law and the Prophets. There is no commandment greater than these. ”
Matthew 22:37-40 and Mark 12:29-31 and John 10:30
During this Christmas season, when we remember the INCARNATION of Our LORD, remember that HE+ came to PURGE away the Lies that attack us and drag us into discouragement.
NO LIE SHALL STAND when HE+ appears!
So now, we pray strongly for you that you, having done all, may STAND FIRM AGAINST THE LYING TORMENTS that the satan is throwing at you, dear brother in CHRIST. The LORD will restore to you the years the locusts have eaten.
Much love in CHRIST, Who+ alone is Life,
both here and beyond the grave…
You are in our prayers. Many thousands of your brothers and sisters are praying also.
May The LORD+ give you HIS+ Supernatural Strength and Shield you on every side, and cover you with the most Precious Blood of The LAMB+ of GOD, and cloth you with HIS BLESSED HOLY SPIRIT.
In HIS+ Great Love

One small voice cries out for the Persecuted Church. More than 100,000,000 Christians around the world are at risk of persecution. It has become one of the worst humanitarian crises on the planet, today! It is ”a crisis point in history” that can no longer be overlooked, or millions more will suffer! Sadly it’s a crisis that not enough people realize exists. Unfortunately the western media rarely reports the extreme persecution inflicted on our Christian brothers and sisters, worldwide. We are called by our God to stand up for all who are destitute, to remember the prisoners as if imprisoned ourselves and to be a VOICE for the persecuted Church! Join us, we CAN make a difference!
