CANADA — In spite of persecution Iran has the fastest growing church in the world. It’s often the Muslim converts who face the worst persecution. Greg Musselman interviews Dr. Hormoz Shariat, founder of Iran Alive Ministries, which has seen an amazing response to the Gospel during COVID-19. Hundreds are calling in each week to accept Jesus!
Having grown up as a Muslim, Dr. Hormoz Shariat is now a passionate follower of Jesus and an active evangelist to Iranian people. He shares how God is awakening people to their deep need for Christ, giving them the boldness to turn to Him and endure persecution for His sake. The stories of Ebrahim Firouzi and Mohammad Reza (Youhan) Omidi highlight the everyday life of a persecuted believer in Iran and the Lord’s faithfulness to His children as they face every effort of the government to eliminate the Body of Christ within their borders.
