(Charisma) An Iranian convert to Christianity serving 10 years in prison for “missionary activities” has written an open letter to the Iranian authorities, asking how his Christian activities could be perceived as anti-state.
“Would it even be possible for a committed Christian—who was born and raised in Iran and whose forefathers lived in this land for thousands of years, and who is a servant to the God who has called him to a ministry of reconciliation—to act against the national security of his own country?” wrote Naser Navard Gol-Tapeh, who has been in Tehran’s infamous Evin Prison since January.
Please pray for Naser Navard Gol-Tapeh (46) who is being denied medical treatment for severe gum infection in Evin Prison, #Tehran. He is in great pain, and his family fears he may lose all his teeth if the authorities continue to deny him treatment. https://t.co/4OgQsMf9OT pic.twitter.com/ZrgtSgn4GR
