A few months ago, Nader became friends with a Christian whom he met after moving to the city. Convinced by what his friend said about Jesus, Nader became a believer and was discipled through the Safar discipleship journey.
Nader soon returned home and began sharing the Gospel with family members one by one.
Today, 12 residents of the tiny village - which has a population of fewer than 100 - have professed faith in Christ. Most of these new believers are being discipled through Safar, and they are using Elam's Weekly Fellowship resource as they meet for fellowship.
Nader hopes to take part in a discipleship course soon, to equip him for ministry. And Nader and his mentors are praying that one day the whole village will be Christian.
