The Islamic Revolution of 1979 led to the establishment of the world’s only country governed by an Islamic theocracy.
Today, many of those who committed their lives to Islamic rule are filled with despair. This disillusionment has opened new doors for the Gospel, which is sweeping across the nation via satellite TV and the Internet, and growing house church movements.

A new believer who has been scared to talk about her faith with her family walked into a surprising sight: Her brother reading a Bible and her sister working on a crossword puzzle in a Christian magazine.
Tala put her faith in Jesus nine months ago, but she was afraid to tell her family. However, a Christian worker secretly delivered a Bible and a Christian magazine to her family home, and her siblings were interested in the materials.
“When I asked them how they were answering the crossword puzzle questions, they said, ‘This book [the Bible] has the answers to all the questions,’” she said.
Tala wishes to start talking to her family about her faith. “Pray for them to find Jesus and that God will use me for that,” she said. Pray that other families inside Iran who are looking for answers about real love and a relationship with God will find them.
Let us pray.
- Echo Tala’s prayers for her family. Thank the Lord for the openness of her siblings and pray they will readily receive Jesus themselves.
- Praise God for the growth of Christianity in Iran.
- Pray for VOM’s projects to distribute God’s Word throughout Iran.
