Padina was ready to kill herself on live TV to earn Allah’s favor and prove the God of the Christians was powerless. Instead, she met Jesus Christ and saw Him heal her mother from sickness. She became passionate to introduce her countrymen to the Savior.
Today she leads a house church network inside Iran, including training church leaders to be ready to face arrest, harassment and persecution. She’ll tell us how they prepare to face persecution, and describe the ways that VOM is helping and strengthening the church in Iran today. Finally, we’ll talk about specific ways to pray for the church in Iran.
You can read more of Padina’s story in the book Iran: Desperate for God or watch a video about how she came to Christ on VOM’s YouTube channel. You can also listen to every episode of VOM Radio as a podcast.
