Please pray for all those affected by Sunday’s earthquake in Iran and Iraq.
As you might know, on Sunday, November 12, 2017, a 7.3 magnitude earthquake struck the border between Iran and Iraq. Most of the casualties occurred in Iran, with over 540 dead and at least 8,000 injured.
What a great privilege that I was able to go on the air soon after the earthquake to minister to the hurting and bring hope to Iranians during this difficult time. All through this week, we have had special live programs ministering to those who have lost loved ones in this earthquake.
The Scandal That Made the Disaster Worse
There is a scandal in the midst of this disaster, causing more grief and making people even more mad at their Islamic government and its corruption.
Many of the dead were residents of government housing projects. The government built new apartment buildings, which they sold to low-income and middle-class people. It is now clear that the government cheated people by using cheap materials to save money.
Pray That Iranians Will Find Hope in Christ
The people blame the government for corruption and the death of the victims. Now they are even more bitter against the current regime.
Once again, whatever the Islamic government does, the people assign it to Islam itself. So the loss of human life in this earthquake and its grief give people another reason to reject not just the Islamic government but Islam itself.
Nearly 70,000 people are homeless. Would you join us in ministering the love of Christ to those in need? We have trusted leaders inside the country who can help the victims in the name of Christ. We are now gathering funds to help victims and share the hope of Christ with them.
Please watch my message below and consider giving sacrificially.
