I often get the question, “What is the most common miracle you hear about inside of Iran?” While the Lord certainly is revealing Himself to people through dreams and visions everyday, I have to say that the most common miracle is radical life transformation. Take Mahmoud, for example. He admittedly abused his own children for any reason he could find. However, after hearing about the grace and love of Christ, he stopped, repented and has been utterly transformed. This is a true miracle of the Lord!
Here is a copy of an email that Mahmoud recently sent our Counseling Center Ministry:
My name is Mahmoud and I live in Iran.
I am a father of 6 and have been watching your programs for several months. As I watch your programs I feel a sense of security and peace. I realized why I felt this when you talked about the characters of our Heavenly Father. I have been a very angry father to my children, to the point that I would hit my children for any reason. This attitude has developed tremendous fear in my children. As a result, my relationship with my children was destroyed.
Your programs have had such an impact on me that I have started to look inward. What I found terrified me. To tell you the truth, I didn’t like who I was.
As a result, I decided that I want to be more like our heavenly Father and began to change my attitude. I gave my heart to Jesus and asked Him to work in me.
I thank you for helping me develop a loving and caring relationship with my children. I owe this transformation to you because you were the vessel that brought the message of Love into my home an help me realize that I need to be like my heavenly Father.
Join me in celebrating the miracle of this transformed life and the peace that has entered this home. The Lord is about the business of transforming Iran into a Christian nation in this generation!
