IRAN: Sevada Aghasar released from prison 

Last Sunday (21 July), Iranian Christian Sevada Aghasarwas released from Tehran’s Evin Prison. He was granted conditional release after serving half of his five-year sentence. He will not have to return providing he upholds the conditions of his release, which will probably mean a prohibition on evangelism.

Praise God and thank you to everyone who has been praying for Sevada while he was in prison!

UPDATE: The eight Christian converts who were arrested in Iran on 1 July have been released on bail.
