1 Timothy 2:3-4, NKJV
For this is good and acceptable in the sight of God our Savior, who desires all men to be saved and to come to the knowledge of the truth.

Pray that those who are training others to take the gospel to the unreached will make it clear that God wants all to be saved and to experience His truth and love.

Elam Ministries

by Diane Tolsma

In a land of contrasts—light and darkness, hope and desolation—once again God is shining His light into hearts resulting in eternal life and transformation! Recently Elam Ministries reported that in one region of Iran, there have been two large baptisms with over 240 Iranians committing their lives to Jesus Christ. Though technically closed to evangelism, God has blessed Iran with people who have open hearts for the gospel of His kingdom. Today Iranians are perceived as the most spiritually open Muslim people group in the world.
Elam Ministries trains believing leaders for fruitful ministry in Iran. It equips the Iranian church with Bibles and resources for evangelism and discipleship. Elam sends trained evangelists, church planters, and media personnel for the Kingdom’s growth and extension.
Getting a New Testament in Iran is difficult. It is illegal, and the religious police are watching. “But the church has its ways,” Christian News and Insight from Elam Ministries reports. When someone requests a Bible, it gets well used in Iran. Typically when someone reads the Bible, God changes him, and his family becomes interested in why that person is changing for the better. Soon they are reading the Bible together, and a house church begins.

Thank the Lord for this interest in the Bible in Iran! Pray that God’s Word, including the children’s Action Bible, reaches the hands and hearts of Iranians, and results in lives transformed by the love of Christ.
