We’ve surpassed over 200,000 Bibles into Iran! These Bibles are transforming lives, and Christianity continues to flourish across the country! Iranian church networks are requesting a record number of Bibles right now. The demand remains high, so we’re picking up the pace. We have set a goal to move 40,000 Bibles into Iran by the end of the year!
Most of these are already in our possession – we just need help to smuggle them into Iran!
Can you imagine what it could mean for someone in Iran to receive a Bible as a Christmas present? What an amazing gift of eternal significance!

The Power of a Single Bible
Yassir and Sarah both experienced the power of the printed Word in a life-altering way. Read or watch their story, and be reminded of the tried and proven ability of the simple Gospel story to change a destiny!
Five years ago, I was working as a bus driver and often drove at night. One night, I saw two men abusing and trying to rape a lady. As I began to approach them, the two men ran away. I realized they had stabbed the woman!
She was in very bad shape, so I quickly took her to the hospital. The woman soon died while there. I couldn’t believe it when I learned I was being accused of her murder, but because there were no witnesses, I was found guilty and sent to prison.
My wife didn’t believe my story and divorced me. I was very depressed because of this; my own wife didn’t trust me.
Three years later, the two men who actually stabbed the lady were caught for another crime and confessed to killing the woman that night. After being wrongfully imprisoned, I was finally released.
As I tried to start a new life, I got a car and started working as a driver, similar to Uber.
One day I had a car accident, crashing into an older man who died.
Because I didn’t have insurance and the accident was my fault, I was sent back to jail. The only way for me to get out was to serve the time or pay huge fines to the government. My life was over. I was extremely depressed and tried to kill myself but failed.
While serving the time, I received word that someone paid for my release. I was able to find out this person’s identity and arranged to meet them.
Her name was Sarah. She invited me into her home. The first thing I remember seeing was a picture of Jesus. The second thing I noticed was a picture of her with the man I killed in the car accident. It was her husband. As I looked at her, we both began to cry.
She told me the story of how her husband was a drug addict many years ago. She was very sad that her husband was living like this, and she wanted to kill herself. Her children left the home and were very distant because of all the problems in their marriage. But someone gave her a book—the Bible.
She told me how it completely changed and restored her entire family. She told me that one of the last prayers she had prayed with her husband before he died in the hospital was that his life would somehow help others come to know Jesus.
Sarah asked if I would be willing to read their Bible and gave it to me to borrow for a few days. I came back to her house three days later.
After reading the Bible, I told her, “I am Barabbas. I was the one that should have died for a crime.” I wanted to become a believer. The prayers of her and her husband worked!
