PAKISTAN:

IRAN:
Today, the Islamic Republic of Iran is home to 75 million people, with 98 percent of the population adhering to Islam. At least 450,000 followers of Christ live in Iran. And while Christianity is an officially-recognized religion in Iran, in practice, many Christians face oppression from their neighbors. Christian believers in Iran continue to place their hope and trust in God. They ask for our prayers as they bravely share Christ with their families and neighbors. God is moving and the church is growing. Please continue to pray for God’s grace and endurance for the followers of Jesus in Iran.
