Iranian pastor Youcef Nadarkhani has been freed!

Youcef Nadarkhani, the Iranian pastor who captured the hearts of millions as he stood firm in his faith while facing execution, has been acquitted of apostasy.
Two organizations that have closely been monitoring the case and have sources in Iran reported Saturday that Nadarkhani, who went on trial early Saturday, has been released from prison and is at home with his family.

Much prayer still continues for religious freedom and for the persecuted church worldwide.
Many are still hesitant at this piece of news about the anti trinitarian and Oneness Pentecostal pastor but for now the general feeling is of relief as he is reunited with his wife and little children.
