Matthias Haghnejad Update
We have received some news regarding our brother, Matthias Haghnejad. MOIS (Ministry of Intelligence and Security), also known as VEVAK, is holding Matthias at a MOIS facility in Rasht. MOIS, one the most powerful ministries in the Iranian government, operates many facilities throughout Iran, all independent of any government oversight. These facilities are reserved for those deemed a threat to national security, often political prisoners. Matthias has not been allowed any visitors at this point, so his physical condition is unknown. Also, they have not yet decided what they will charge him with, but have set his bail at $30,000. Please continue to hold him up in prayer for his safety, strength, courage in the face of suffering.
