Pastor Youcef Released by Iran Court

You will recall I brought the plight of Pastor Youcef to the pages of NCFP previously. It is with great joy that I bring news of his release. My strong belief as a Christian sustains me and what an example Youcef has been to every Christian in the world. God is good and has delivered him from evil.

“Today marks a day of celebration. After languishing in prison for almost three years, under the threat of execution for his faith, Pastor Youcef Nadarkhani has been released from prison and acquitted of his apostasy charge.

Pastor Youcef had been summoned to appear before the court this morning for the charges brought against him. His hearing lasted almost six hours. But in the end, he was released and able to return home to his family.

Some of our sources close to the case report that the court acquitted him of apostasy, but charged and convicted him of evangelizing to Muslims. According to these same sources, the court sentenced Pastor Youcef to three years in prison and granted him time served, which means his prison sentence already has been completed.” []
