1. Gilbert was 17 years old when his father was fatally stabbed 26 times with a knife for his faith and ministry in Iran. Yet God transformed the tragedy into a profound testimony when Gilbert was willing to forgive the persecutors. Gilbert wrote this song and dedicated it to the very ones who caused him to mourn. Today, he shares the Gospel with the same nation that took his father away from him and, as a result, thousands of Iranians have come to know our Lord Jesus and experience God`s forgiveness of their sins.

  3. Every day, there are thousands of Iranians coming to Christ by hearing the gospel through satellite programs, secret evangelism and even dreams. Interestingly, among those Iranians are also officials within the government itself. An underground church faces persecution, prison charges and in some cases even death when the Iranian government becomes aware of such gatherings held in their own country. This is an inspirational story that portrays the struggles, excruciating emotions and conflicts of Iranian believers that ultimately results in Christians uniting globally through prayer and fellowshipping in their sufferings.

  4. Watch the amazing story of Padina (not her real name) and her seriously ill mother. Both of these Iranian women were ready to commit suicide, but instead came to faith in Jesus Christ after a Christian television program and a miracle changed everything! See how these ladies went from despair to a life filled with hope and are now risking their safety to tell others about Jesus.

Many have spent weeks and months in prison, often serving long stretches in solitary confinement. They also endure interrogation and physical abuse.
