Christian Man Sentenced for Preaching - In Iran

Just heard that a Christian man in Iran has been sentenced to 10 years in prison.  His crime was for preaching.  Mohammad-Hadi (Mostafa) Bordbar, a 27-year-old resident of the city of Rasht, was ‘tried by Judge Pir-Abbasi on the morning of June 9, 2013 in branch 26 of the Revolutionary Court in Tehran,’ amid a wider government crackdown on spreading Christianity in Iran said Mohabat News, an agency of Iranian Christian and activists.  Iran seems to be in good company since they are arresting preachers in California, North Carolina and New Orleans.

Don't forget to pray for Brett Coronado and Mark Mackey as they face the potential for jail time in California.
