TWR Country Focus: Iran
In many societies around the world, Christianity isn’t welcome and believers face rejection and sometimes even persecution. Of course, that makes it very difficult for Christians to share their faith and for nonbelievers to hear what the gospel is truly about.
This message from a woman in Iran is a strong reminder that listeners often depend on TWR broadcasts to bring them the Word of God.
I’m one of the regular listeners of Women of Hope. I’m working in a water mill in [a city of Iran].
My husband is a truck driver and was involved in an accident and has been in prison since May 2014. I have three children, the oldest of whom is 15.
It was by the grace of God that I heard about Women of Hope, and through the blessing of this program, I [accepted] Christ. Otherwise, who knows where I would be now?
Your programs are a huge encouragement for me and for those who are like me and going through hard times. My daughter … is listening to your programs, too, and she has so many questions about salvation. But the only resource that we have is your programs. Please make sure to add a section in your programs to provide additional instructions about Jesus and salvation.
God bless you and all the Women of Hope staff.
Facts About Iran:
- Among the oldest languages in the world and also known as Farsi and Dari, Persian has maintained a recognizable form since at least the 6th century B.C.
- Most of the people making up the Persian-speaking world live in countries where the gospel faces significant antagonism. This makes it hard to learn about and act out biblical principles.
- Project Hannah’s Women of Hope began broadcasting in Farsi in 2012.
