Missionaries say they were able to distribute more than 18,000 Persian New Testaments ahead of Easter in Iran despite reports of persecution. ‘This is the good news from evangelists who are in the midst of two-weeks of dedicated outreach to mark ‘Norouz’ (Persian New Year),’ said Elam Ministries, a mission group founded by Iranian church leaders.
Elam noted ‘a great hunger for the Word’ of God. ‘The outreach teams are finding that people are curious and open to reading the Gospel of Jesus… Iranians today are seen as the most open Muslim people to the Gospel in the world. More have become Christians since the revolution than the previous 1,300 years put together,’ the group added.
Bible Study: Hebrews 4:12
PRAISE God for this intense hunger for truth.
PRAY for a great coming to Christ among the people, that will ultimately change the Iranian nation.
