Isfahan: The cultural capital

Resting in the centre of Iran is Isfahan (or Esfehan), one of the country’s great historical cities with 2,500 years of history. Numbering over a million people, it has a great wealth of cultural and historical monuments. In years past, Isfahan was at the crossroads of international trade and diplomacy and thus had a menagerie of languages, religions and customs.

The church in Isfahan has stayed faithful through the years. Pray for continued steadfastness and wisdom. Pray that the Lord’s glory would be the ‘lifter of their heads.’
