A WAVE OF
EVANGELISM IN IRAN
You can feel the extra weight in your pocket.
You wouldn’t dare leave home without them.
Before the day is over, the Books will be in the hands of seekers.
You look over your shoulder, scanning for danger, but also looking for an opportunity.
Your heart is beating fast. The risk is great.
The mission is clear.
The reward is eternal.
If you were a Christian in Iran who distributes Bibles, this would be your reality.
We talk often about the lives that are changed on account of a single Bible. But have you ever wondered how these Bibles made their way into the hands of 215,000+ people in a nation that is 99% Muslim? Recently, we spoke directly to a few of the people responsible for distributing the Bibles that World Compassion sends.
On the surface, they may look like ordinary people. Mothers, fathers, businessmen, students… But these individuals are laser-focused on a Kingdom mission. They are carriers of the Gospel – a church on the move. Bibles are like our cell phones… We don’t leave home without one,” an Iranian pastor shared. It’s the indigenous church in Iran that is distributing the Gospel through one-on- one, personal encounters!
When a shipment of Bibles arrives in Iran, they are distributed to local churches who then give them to trustworthy individuals throughout various cities in the country. These individuals distribute the Bibles to people they encounter, such as taxi drivers, wait staff, colleagues, and even strangers. This grassroots evangelism movement is helping to spread the message of Jesus to the furthest corners of Iran.
With the increasing demand for Bibles, the goal is to reach 100,000 people in Iran this year. By the end of 2022, this could mean an additional 100,000 people in Iran becoming carriers of the Gospel and starting a discipleship process. To achieve this, we need to raise $700,000 (£600,000) to put God’s Word in the hands of these individuals.
You can make a difference by donating today. Every $7 (£6) provides a Bible to someone in Iran. Your support can help us reach this goal and bring much-needed life to the Iranian people. Additionally, please consider setting up a monthly recurring gift to support this ongoing mission.
Prayer is also powerful in supporting this effort. Please pray for the safe arrival of the Bibles, the safety and protection of those distributing them, and for the hearts of those who receive the Bibles to be open to a new life through Jesus.
Thank you for being a part of reaching nations restricted to the Gospel message.
