Defending Religious Freedom

Dear Friends,

As you may have heard, on August 25th, 2018, I was arrested in the Mall of America in Minnesota, for sharing my Christian faith with two Muslim women during a private conversation.  

The story was immediately picked up by PJ Media, Jihad Watch, and other online news organizations. Thereafter, several radio shows contacted me for an interview. 

Most of you know that I was born and raised in Iran as a devout Muslim. I have experienced firsthand the horrors and injustices of Islamic Sharia Law.  By God's grace, I found Jesus when I was 18, for which I faced persecution in the Mid East, but God made a way for me to escape to America as a religious refugee. 

Since leaving Iran years ago, I have been faithfully sharing my testimony and serving the Lord Jesus on missions overseas and through my ministry in Los Angeles.  However, never in a million years did I think that persecution would follow me in America. 

If you are a brother or sister in Christ, or a concerned American who wants to preserve our cherished freedoms in America, especially those of speech and religion, please consider making a donation to help defray my legal defense and other expenses. My arraignment is set for October. Any amount is welcome.

Muslims are afforded the same constitutional freedoms in this great nation, but they are aggressively advancing their agenda to stifle Christians and other religious groups. Currently, several Muslims are running for office in Minnesota. If they get elected, I can guarantee you that the political, religious and social fabric of their respective places of jurisdiction would dramatically and very quickly change in favor of Islamic practices.

Therefore, it is critical that we bring awareness of this unfolding reality to as many Americans as possible, and support the groups in our midst who are proactively countering it. 

To those who have been praying for me and my ministry, thank you so much for your support. I appreciate each and every one of you. May God bless you and your families richly!

Yours in Christ,
Ramin Parsa

UPDATE ON the Pre-Trial Minnesota Case:

Dear brothers and sisters, supporters , the prosecutor did NOT dismiss the case at the pre-trial hearing on December 11th. There is a settlement conference date set for March 7th 2019 and if they don’t settle the case by then, I will have to go to trial on April 29th 2019. Please be praying for God’s will to be done, for wisdom, Council and boldness. And Isn’t amazing that while terrorists are killing people on Christmas shops in France, Minnesota government is using its energy and recourses to prosecute me for sharing the Gospel of Jesus Christ in a private conversation, at the request of the hearers? What is happening in Minnesota? What’s happening to America? Please share this and pass it around. Appreciate all your support and prayers.

Hello dear friends and supporters. I hope you have had a great and meaningful Thanksgiving with friends and family. We surely have many thing to be thankful for daily. Thanksgiving should not be a one in a year holiday but a lifestyle of gratitude and thankfulness for the goodness, Grace and mercy that the Lord Jesus Christ has shown us.

Sorry for not having updated you in a while, I have been on mission trips, just came back from a mission trip in Middle East 2 weeks ago for underground Church leaders who all are ex-Muslims. You should have seen their hunger and passion for the Lord, truly inspiring. After that I had meetings to catch up with. I already appreciate all your prayers and support. Who could have imagined that one day in America we have to go to court just because of sharing our faith in a personal conversation at a public place? A nation that was built based upon Biblical principals, the founders were devout Christians, has been a refuge for many oppressed people around the world. Shortly after my arrest, the Iranian government arrested my cousin and an underground Church Pastor with 500 New Testament. My nephew is currently at large. The Iranian government wrote an article about my arrest that “ I was insulting Muslims and was arrested” of course not true. As you know Minnesota just elected a Muslim to be their attorney general and a few other Somali Muslims for congress both state and federal level.

My attorney has been talking to the prosecutors, he told them our side of story and they asked for witnesses, which he presented to them. He is trying to get a result by end of this month. They have me a pre-trial for December 11 at the last hearing. Please keep me in your prayers, I’m getting ready to go on another mission trip next week. Please share this goFundMe page with others to contribute. I’m willing to go through any necessary step to share the Gospel of our Lird Jesus Christ and will never relent. I ask the Father to give me boldness to preach the Gospel with boldness. Appreciate your prayers and support as well.

Blessings In His service,
Ramin Parsa
