Ad Feedback

The story of Saeed Abedini, the American pastor imprisoned in Iran for his faith, has the world focusing attention on Iran's treatment of Christians. Now two Iranian women -- Maryam Rustampoor and Marzieh Amirizadeh -- are telling their story of persecution.

In 2009, Rustampoor had come home from a dentist appointment and was resting on her couch when her doorbell rang.

The moment she opened the door her life, and the life of her roommate, Amirizadeh, changed forever.

How did their faith help them keep their sanity while in prison? And what caused the women to stop praying for release? CBN News Anchor/Reporter Wendy Griffith spoke with the women about this and more. Click play to watch the full interview.
