    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

    January 18, 2018 | Persian Ministry

    Christmas has just passed. As Christians, we celebrated Jesus leaving the splendor of heaven, humbling himself to become a baby, born in a barn… He is Immanuel, God with us. Jesus has many titles. One of them which the world so desperately needs to know and accept is PRINCE OF PEACE. You have likely heard … Read more
