Persian Missions: Looking Back and Looking Forward

“Grace be to you, and peace, from God our Father, and from the Lord Jesus Christ.”  Ephesians 1:2

I want to wish you a Happy New Year. As believers we can look back and be thankful and look forward and be full of faith and hope.

Looking back at 2016 we have seen the Lord do many things in the hearts of his people and I wanted to thank you all for your prayers and support. Your support has enabled us to purchase Bibles and New Testament’s to put in the hands of believers and those interested in the Gospel, do the work of discipling believers, support pastors and missionaries who are in need in Turkey and Iran and provide for the needs of families of prisoners for Christ.

In 2016 we all saw brother Behnam get released from prison, after six years, and I had the opportunity to meet him and start a friendship. We’ve seen many former Muslims turn to Christ as their Lord and Savior and get baptized in his name.

Looking forward into 2017, I am working with a team of believers to release a DVD called Persia: Unveiled, detailing our ministry and how the Lord has moved in the lives of Iranian Christians through conversion and persecution and revelation of the Word. Our educated guess is that the project would be completed in May of 2017. We recently filmed interviews and reenactments with believers and the long hard process of editing the film will be underway shortly after the new year. Hand in hand with that I am working on a book of testimonies that will go by the same name.

With that said, we continue to need your prayers and support moving forward. God willing, I will be returning to Turkey to do missions work and outreach in the first quarter of the year. There is indeed much unrest and danger in Turkey, but we have been protected and delivered out of every difficulty. This is your prayers working together with God’s grace.

With love in Christ,

Brother Jason DeMars
