Despite the dangers, this Christmas many thousands of Iranians will gather together in house churches all across Iran and in larger gatherings throughout the surrounding region to worship and celebrate the birth of Jesus Christ.
That many will hear the gospel for the first time as Christians reach out to family, friends and strangers with the Good News.
For safety and security at church meetings and for those evangelising.
For a meaningful time of worship for those who are gathered together, particularly for those new believers who are celebrating Christmas for the first time.
The mission of Elam is to strengthen and expand the church in the Iran region and beyond.
Elam Ministries is a registered charity in England & Wales and a 501(c)(3) non-profit charity in the United States.
