Broadcasting Salvation in Iran
July 3, 2012
In a recent email from our Be-A-Voice-Network we discuss this very issue. Here's the email, in case you missed it. If you aren't yet a member of the Be-A-Voice-Network you can join very easily here.
We appreciate your desire to be a voice for Christians who suffer for their faith in Christ.
In Iran, there is growing disillusionment with Islam. High unemployment and drug addiction are other serious issues. Many Iranians are seeking something better, and they are increasingly open to the gospel.
In January 2012, Iran Alive Ministries, a VOM partner, began broadcasting Christian programs into Iran 24 hours a day. Recently, a Muslim family in Iran watched one of the programs and immediately contacted the Iran Alive counseling center, asking questions about Jesus. A short time later they were moved by the Holy Spirit to pray the sinner’s prayer of repentance. They recorded their prayer and sent the recording to Iran Alive to make sure they prayed correctly.
Within one week of becoming followers of Jesus, this Iranian family shared the gospel with 20 Muslims, leading them to saving faith! You can hear the actual recording of the family’s prayer of repentance in a video posted on The Voice of the Martyrs-USA YouTube page.
Please remember Iranian Christians in your prayers. Thank you for caring enough about them to get involved!
