John and Pat discuss the release of Pastor Youcef from an Iranian prison.  Pastor Youcef was charged with apostasy and evangelism to the Muslims.  According to Islamic Sharia law, an apostate has three days to recant.  Pastor Youcef refused and has spent the last three years of his life in prison awaiting his execution, but God made a way for his release.  They continue to share and celebrate his refusal to bow his knee just like Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego.
