Good News for Iranian Convert in Sweden


Reza Jebbari's Street Ministry

We've just received word that the Swedish government has decided that Iranian Reza Jebbari will be allowed--at least for now--to remain in Sweden. The Muslim convert to Christianity will not be deported and returned to Iran.

Our source sent this word to us this morning:

Migration Services have stopped all actions to get Mr. Reza expelled from Sweden!!!

This is so wonderful and we're so grateful to the Lord and your work!

This means the following: He will get a new hearing. According to his lawyer, in Mr. Reza's case, that hearing will be more of a formality to be able to grant him permission to stay. That, since the evidence now is so strong in his favor!

So, I think - what you can say tonight is that the Migration Services has stopped his expulsion for now and that they will give him a new trial. Also that we are cautiously optimistically that Mr. Reza will be able to stay in Sweden and that we are tremendously thankful for all the support and to the Lord Jesus Christ, who's heard our prayers!

Also, Mr. Reza asked me to convey his thanks' and gratitude's to you and the people at CBN!

Prayer and pressure works, folks. Thanks be to God! We also thank our viewers and readers for interceding on behalf of this Christian man who would have faced danger if he had been forced to return to Iran.

We'll keep you posted.
