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
