Iran Allows Surgery on Ailing, Imprisoned Pastor

Ad Feedback

The Iranian government has finally allowed doctors to perform surgery on imprisoned Pastor Benham Irani.

Irani suffered from a herniated disc and bleeding intestines and urgently needed medical care.

According to Present Truth Ministries, the pastor is doing much better since the surgery was performed Feb. 22.

Jailed since May 2011, the evangelist is serving a five-year sentence for committing crimes against Iranian National Security.

Irani's wife and two children are thankful for the small act of mercy, but they're asking Christians to pray for his early release from prison.
