IRAN: Imprisonment Leads to Thirteen Salvations

An Iranian pastor who was released from prison in 2023, after serving for many years leading a house church, reported that God enabled him to work as an evangelist behind bars despite constant surveillance. He said that when he started his sentence, “I began to think that this was a dangerous place and that it would not be possible to witness to anyone.” But later he found ways to secretly witness to others and eventually led 13 prisoners to Christ. “During the recreation times, I would walk around in a spirit of friendship with these new Believers and teach them how to grow in their faith and answer their questions,” he said. The pastor hopes to somehow continue discipling those prisoners from outside the prison walls: “I realized that if I had not been imprisoned, these 13 would not have had an opportunity to hear the Gospel and believe in Christ,” he said after his release.
