Farshid's letter to his daughter

During October 2013, Farshid's young daughter celebrated her birthday. For her third birthday in a row, Farshid was unable to be with her on her special day, as he continues to serve out his six year sentence in Evin prison.

So Farshid wrote her a short letter:

My beautiful Rosanna, today is that wonderful day that my precious daughter came to this world. I will never forget the first moment I saw you 10 years ago. You were crying and your little hands were shaking like all infants. But even your cry was beautiful for me.
Although it is my honor to be in prison for our Lord Jesus Christ, I am so sorry that I couldn't be with you for your last three birthdays...
I want you to know I love you so much and nothing could separate our hearts from each other.  Have fun with your friends and remember daddy is there with you and here for you.
Please join us in praying anew for Farshid and his family.  The separation is so hard for them- please pray for strength to endure, that they will all deeply trust the Lord and that He would give them His peace.
Thank you.
