and still there were people standing…

Ian Uden reports:

On Wednesday 9th July 2014 St John’s hosted an Open Doors event featuring two Iranian Christian ladies, Maryam Rostampour and Marziyeh Amirizadeh who spent nine months in Iran’s most notorious prison for refusing to deny their faith in the Lord Jesus.

Despite having just arrived in Britain that morning after a 24 hour flight from Melbourne, Australia each one testified about how they came to know Jesus, then answered questions about their time in prison. When the testifying was over they stayed on in the hall to talk to people and sign copies of their book, “Captive in Iran.”

The church was absolutely packed for this event and the presence of the Lord truly tangible in a way we have not known at St John’s for a long time. We had to put out more chairs and shift the bookstall into the hall, and still there were people standing.


Please remember to pray for the persecuted church and to support them in any way you can.
