Iran: Ten converts arrested in house church

I praise God that these 10 people have given their lives to the Lord Jesus Christ. I pray that the Lord Jesus Christ will protect my brethren in Christ and that they will find ways to glorify God in and through their persecution as seen in this article:

2/9/2012 Iran (Mohabat News) – Plain clothes security authorities raided a house church and arrested 10 members who were gathered for prayer service. All 10 detainees were transferred to an unknown location.

According to Iranian Christian news agency, Mohabat News' reporters, following the continued arrests of Iranian Christians, Iranian security authorities invaded a residential building used as house church on 8 February 2012, and arrested 10 Christian converts gathered there to worship.
