Acquitted!

According to the prisoner alert I received in e-mail (and I heard the news on KLove as well):

"Praise God! On May 22, Maryam and Marzieh were acquitted of all charges, according to Elam Ministries. Maryam and Marzieh thank you for all your prayers. "We are most grateful to everyone who prayed for us," Marzieh said. "I have no doubt that God heard the prayers of his people." Maryam added, "I believe our arrest, imprisonment and subsequent release were in the timing and plan of God, and it was all for his glory. But the prayers of people encouraged and sustained us throughout this ordeal." Thank you for writing to Maryam and Marzieh. We encourage you to continue writing to other believers still in prison. Your letters make a difference. Pray and write today!"

For more information go here. According to KLove the women are no in another country but because of their time in jail they were able to share Christ with others in prison. Of course that may be why Iran released them, so they wouldn't be a witness.

Thanks for keeping this in the forefront for others to read. It's good to check in on ya'll. CanNOT believe your baby is a K Grad. OMG.
As someone told me recently, "The days are long, but the years are short."
Seems true, huh?
Blessings,
Vicki and Emily
