Christians in Iran mourn loss of leader and friend

A VOM partner recently reported that a dear friend and important Christian leader in Iran has died after a long illness.

"Glory be to God because [my friend] is now in His arms and without pain," wrote the VOM partner. The man who died leaves behind a wife of just a few years.

"Please pray for us," the VOM partner asked, "because he was our best friend, confidant and co-worker. I have personally known him for almost eight years, and for all of us it's very difficult. In Iran, church is more of a family than a place we meet, and we really feel that we have lost our brother. His place is so empty without him."

Please pray!
  • Praise God for this man's life, and thank God for the people he touched through his work for Christ. 
  • Please lift up the Christian leader's wife, our partner in Iran, and all believers who share Christ in Iran.
