Free Themm

Meet Maryam and Marzieh. 

Both are Iranian women imprisoned for their Christian faith.

These women were thrown into Iranian prison for publicly expressing their love for the Lord and were deemed as "anti-government" and a "threat to national security".  All simply because of their religious practices and refusal to recant their Christian faith. Both women are extremely ill and need severe medical attention. They desperately need our support and prayers. 

Please take a moment to read their story at www.freethemm.com 

This heart breaking story makes me on-my-knees thankful for the amazing freedom we have to worship and freely practice any religion here in the United States. We truly are so blessed. 

*I know my posts are typically light-hearted and fun, but I felt it necessary to bring this story to light. The more prayers for these women...the better!

Reading about things like this make me remember how much I take for granted, being in the US. Thanks for taking the time to post this and remind us that the rest of the world truly does have to struggle when it comes to religion.
