IRANIAN DOCTORS BECOME CHRISTIANS….TURN HOSPITAL INTO CHURCH
Several people who help distribute Bibles in Iran are taxi drivers. Just a few weeks ago one of these drivers picked up a husband and wife who happened to both work at a local hospital.
While in the backseat, they were complaining about how bad the COVID-19 situation is. Frustrated and angry in their tone of conversation, they expressed anger towards God, stating disbelief in any god, because God would not do this to people. They shared disappointment with their government’s response and lack of supplies to treat people, etc…
The driver could tell they were stressed, exhausted and frustrated with the whole situation. He let them finish venting and then began to give his thoughts.
He agreed this is a very sad and difficult situation, but he also said he has peace and hope in the midst of the chaos. He began to talk about his God, a God of love, compassion and peace.
He spent three hours with this couple sharing the Gospel, ultimately leading them to Jesus. He gave them one of our Bibles and continues to keep in contact with them.
This is what is so amazing… This couple is on the front lines of the fight against COVID-19, testing and treating patients in Iran. As brand new Christians, they have an incredible zeal to share Jesus and the hope they have found in life. They are now praying for every patient they see and offering them a Bible.
Think about all the patients they see every week…even without the coronavirus. And…it’s not just their patients. They are praying for and sharing the gospel with other doctors, nurses and staff at the hospital who are witnessing this.
They even started a prayer group that meets in the hospital now. This is just in the past couple of weeks. In a way, they have turned the hospital into a church!
They shared they do not feel any negative pressure from people around them…people are open and friendly towards this good news!
The seed sown into this couple’s life is now multiplying to people around them. The soil of the hearts of people in Iran are ready…now is the time to sow seed!
