(Continental News) Pastor Youcef Nadarkhani, recently released from an Iranian prison, has written a letter of thanks to all those who brought attention to his plight and prayed for his release.

According to CBN News, he was imprisoned and charged with apostasy, a crime punishable by death in Iran.

A report on a CBN blog “The Global Lane,” encouraged readers to continue praying for Nadarkhani and his family. The blog read in part, “They still face danger from militant Muslims and/or government agents who may want to kill them because of Youcef’s evangelistic efforts.”

The blog reproduced Nadarkhani’s letter of thanks, sent to CBN by Present Truth Ministries.
