Answered Prayer! Pastor Youcef released

Breaking: Christian Pastor Youcef Nadarkhani has been released from jail in Iran, acquitted of apostasy (death penalty), and sentenced to time served for evangelizing Muslims. He is now home with his family after spending 1,062 days in prison for his Christian faith. Praise the Lord for answered prayer! Please continue to pray for him as another pastor, Mehdi Dibaj, was once acquitted and released for apostasy but was then later murdered. 

Get the backstory here.
