At the beginning of 2012, a Muslim family starting watching Christian satellite TV broadcasts.They immediately began email correspondence with the outreach ministry, asking questions about what they had seen, about Jesus and God’s word.
A week later, the family recorded their voices and sent an audio file to the outreach ministry.
The family wanted to check that they had said the prayer of salvation correctly:
“Dear God, we confess that we are sinners, I confess that I cannot save myself through my own good works. I believe that You died on the cross for my sins. And they put You in the tomb and you rose from the dead three days later. I believe that You are still alive and have the authority to forgive my sins. And to make me righteous in front of the everlasting God, I ask that You accept me and as You promised, please give me a new life. I thank You for hearing my prayers. Amen.”
Transformed, this family began sharing the gospel with their family members. Within one week, 20 more Iranians were transformed, becoming followers of Jesus.”…I tell you, open your eyes and look at the fields! They are ripe for harvest.” (John 4:35) Despite intense persecution, people are coming to Jesus! Conservative estimates state more than 100,000 believers in Iran (some optimistic
estimates put it at close to a million). This underground church multiplication is a remarkable move by the Holy Spirit.
This Iran – created, known and loved by God.
