In one of the most strict Islamic societies on earth, where the Ayatollah-led government enforces Sharia law and morality through the infamous Islamic Revolutionary Guard, an unprecedented movement to Christ among ordinary Iranian Muslims has been happening for the last 40 years.
In this episode Matt interviews an Iranian lady called Mariam.
She tells how, through dreams, through the Word of God, through satellite TV and through the people of God, she and several members of her family came to faith in Jesus.
She shares about the remarkable growth of the church in Iran despite the persecution, the challenges and opportunities that lie ahead for Iran’s 88 million people and some stories of the years she spent in Turkey sharing the good news with Muslims there.
For more about the persecuted and growing church in Iran, do check out these two films, called Sheep Among Wolves. There are some amazing testimonies of Iranian believers in these films, but some harrowing accounts too of the suffering they have had to endure. https://www.faistudios.org/sheep
