There is joy as our sister, Emma*, graduated to glory on Wednesday, February 20, 2019, and no longer suffers from the ailments of her earthly body.

    Purpose Beyond Our Understanding

    February 8, 2019 | Persian Ministry

    Recently one of our dear friends in the Persian Speaking World shared part of his testimony: When I was sent to prison, I questioned God. The prison was built for 800 inmates but currently holds around 3,000 with crimes ranging from severe spousal abuse, theft, anti-government activities to murder.

    Prayer and Persecution

    December 20, 2018 | Persian Ministry

    One of my favorite verses in the Bible are Jesus’ words recorded in John 16:33, “In this world you will have trouble. But take heart, I have overcome the world.” The LBT translates troubles as trials and sorrows.  That covers it all doesn’t it? We can describe trials and sorrows with our own experiences. Let … Read more

    Miracles for Today

    October 11, 2018 | Persian Ministry

    Do you believe in miracles? I do! What is a miracle? Some people think that a miracle can only be when God intervenes in an impossible situation and brings about deliverance according to their expectations.  Often that means a physical intervention such as: -Healing from a terminal illness. -Removing evil people so the oppressed can … Read more

    Fleeing their Country and Running towards Christ

    August 17, 2018 | Persian Ministry

    Since I have been on regular doses of pain medication to deal with the pain caused by pancreatic cancer, I get drowsy and nap a lot. I confess that it is lovely to lay down on a cool bed during the heat of the day for a siesta. This is definitely not possible for our … Read more

    The Lamb’s Book of Life

    June 21, 2018 | Persian Ministry

    Have you ever wondered what script is used for the names written down in the Lamb’s Book of Life? Is it artistic like Persian? Or picturesque like Chinese? Or universal like Latin? Have the names been inscribed with something like a pen or a chisel? Who writes the names of the believers, the followers of … Read more

  • Thank you Henry Martyn for your gift to the Persian Speaking World

    May 16, 2018 | Persian Ministry

    Who is Henry Martyn? His name does not appear very Persian. Henry Martyn was born in the UK in 1781. When he landed in Calcutta, India, in 1806, he exclaimed “Now let me burn out for God!” Six years later, he did just that after contracting a fever and dying on his way home to … Read more

    Foretaste of Heaven

    April 18, 2018 | Persian Ministry

    I am sad. Why? Because it is 2018 and not 2017. You see in April 2017 my husband who leads the Persian Ministry and I were part of a believers’ conference in the Middle East. This was not just any believers’ conference. It had been planned for years and organized by one of our supporting … Read more

    Throughout the world, and in particular, the Persian Speaking World, many people are striving to receive a prize far more precious than any medal given at the Olympics. The training they undergo daily is intense. These are men and women of all ages from varied backgrounds with different abilities, education and talent, but they have … Read more

  • SPIES in our midst

    February 13, 2018 | Persian Ministry

    What comes to your mind when you think about spies? I mean beyond the movies, novels and games meant to entertain. Do you think about press releases about innocent people who have been incarcerated on the charge of espionage because that is a convenient charge? Do you think about folks who have been highly trained … Read more
