In Iran, promoting Christianity is a crime punishable by death. The penalty for two courageous women living out their faith? The threat of a death sentence and 259 days in Iran's most notorious prison.
Maryam Rostampour and Marziyeh Amirizadeh were born into Muslim families but became Christians as young adults. The women met each other while studying in Turkey, before returning home to Iran to share their new found faith with others. Maryam and Marziyeh knew they were putting their lives at risk, but it didn't stop them living out their faith. In 2009, they were arrested in Iran for promoting Christianity.

Open Doors is proud to bring Maryam and Marziyeh to Australia for a series of public meetings from 26 June to 6 July 2014, as well as visiting Vision Radio Network to talk with 20twenty's Neil Johnson. See full tour date details below.
