This is an update on Iranian Pastor Youcef Nadarkhani from The Voice of the Martyrs. He’s the house church leader who is facing execution for apostasy:

An attorney for Nadarkhani said if the Ayatollah Khomeini does not respond to the two letters sent to him by the 11th Circuit Court of Gilan, the court will issue a ruling in the pastor’s case by mid-December.

The court says it will wait only one month. The court asked the supreme leader to issue a final decision in the matter, but so far he has refused to get involved.

Pastor Nadarkhani remains in Lakan prison in Iran’s Gilan Province. VOM said he is continuing to stand strong in his faith and remains in good spirits and health.

His family and members of his church are asking Christians to pray that God will sustain him and give him courage and boldness to testify to those around him.

You can write a letter to him in his own (Farsi) language at VOM's Prisoner Alert.
