Maryam Naghash Zargaran, receiving urgent medical care, told to report back to prison.

(Voice of the Persecuted) Maryam Naghash Zargaran, also known as Nasim, came from a Muslim background, but left Islam to follow Christ. She became a Christian through the house church movement led by Pastor Saeed Abedini. Saeed was also serving an 8 year sentence for Christian activities, but released with 2 other Americans after spending 3-1/2 years in the Iranian prison system.

After Nahim’s conversion, she worked with Abedini planting house churches. Nasim was also arrested for evangelism. She was charged with “acting against national security” and in July 2013 was sentenced to four years at the notorious Evin prison. She had been incarcerated for nearly three years.

Nahim began a hunger strike in May protesting the prison’s denial to properly treat her multiple and serious health problems. She was also experiencing severe pain and other complications. The medical team in the prison recognized the severity of her condition and advised hospital care, but it was denied. When she became very ill, near death according to family members, prison authorities finally allowed her to leave the prison on June 6 to seek medical attention.

Staying informed of her current condition, Abedini claimed that the Iranian Intelligence police told her to immediately return to the prison. She has refused to go back as she still needs medical treatment. Abedini said the authorities will go to her home, arrest and take her back to the prison by brute force. “She needs our prayers. Our fight is NOT over yet”, he shared.

    Praying for her, and praying that Jesus would be exalted and sought after in Iran over all things. I pray that Iran would discover the light of the Gospel in its fullness, and be saved and delivered from the lies of the enemy.
