Pastor Farshid is serving a six-year sentence in Evin Prison, Iran’s most notorious prison known for brutal treatment and even torture. What was his crime? Being a Christian who loves to share his faith with others and getting them to know the Saviour in who he believes in.

Pastor Farshid was first arrested in 2010, he was held in solitary confinement for more than 100 days. He’s now been separated from his family and loved ones for over two years.

Elam Ministries is asking Christians to send Farshid a letter of encouragement. The letters also remind the Iranian government that people know what they’re up to.
