TEHRAN, IRAN (Worthy News)– Arrested on charges of blasphemy against Islam, Pastor Matthias Haghnejad is now free on bail, according to ASSIST News Service.
Haghnejad’s bail was set at $30,000.
“A family member pledged their property so that he could get out of prison,” said Jason DeMars of Present Truth Ministries. “Thank you for praying for him and for all who helped make this known throughout the world. God worked through your prayers and made a way for his release.”
“This is a serious charge against him so I ask that you continue to pray for him and his family, he said. “God made a way for his acquittal previously and I believe he will do so again.”
DeMars said Haghnejad was imprisoned without access to an attorney by the Iranian Ministry of Intelligence and National Security; he was arrested during a pastoral visit with a family in the Rasht area.
