One of the things that I treasure most, as I look back on my children’s younger years, is the long list of people who invested in the spiritual foundations of each of them. My children grew up in the US, enjoying religious freedom and precious fellowship with other believers who sharpened and challenged their walks with Christ. In Iran, children enjoy zero religious freedom and very little, if any, fellowship with other believers.
As a result, one of our key strategies has been to develop solid, biblical, simple and fun children’s programming that serves as a form of “Sunday School” for our Church 7 programming, which provides church for the 97% of the believers in Iran who have no access to fellowship of any kind, including the underground church.
The video below will give you a glimpse into the “Secret Agent” world of Kidz 7. A place of discovery, intrigue and intimacy with the Savior, whose love for children can only be described as fierce.
Please join me in praying for the children of Iran, who are the key to transforming Iran into a Christian nation in this generation.
No matter the trials or suffering that you – or your Christian brothers and sisters in Iran – may be going through today, know that new birth has given you a living hope. Hallelujah!
May you and your family be blessed this Easter. And I thank you for your prayers and partnership in sharing this Good News with so many others in Iran God bless you!
As I mentioned in a previous post, Persians around the world have been celebrating Nowruz, the Persian New Year. I explained the Haft Sin Sofreh and the symbolism behind each item.
Today, I thought you might like to see a brief video of our own Haft Sin Sofreh that we have been using to connect the symbolism of this secular holiday to the hope of Christ. It is actually a very easy thing to do, as you will see.
