Christmas 2013 saw this moving message arrive from Farshid, addressed to all who have been praying for him. We pray you are encouraged as you read it.
Dear brothers and sisters,
We are celebrating Christmas in prison with honor and unexplainable joy in Christ.
2013 is going to end and we are very thankful to the Lord for everything we were given this year. I had called 2013 ‘the year of revelation’. Now I am very excited because I am calling 2014 ‘the year of God’s presence’.
God calls us to walk before him and be blameless, as he said to Abraham. So far, walking before him is very sweet and so exciting. It is filled with great endurance, afflictions, hardships, calamities, beatings, imprisonments, sleepless nights, hunger, purity, knowledge, patience, kindness, the Holy Spirit, genuine love, truthful speech and the power of God.
So my dear brothers and sisters, if you read this, be ready for a very exciting journey in 2014.
Thank you so much for remembering me in your prayers after 1,100 days.
With blessings in Christ,
