WOMEN IN IRAN

Countless women suffer oppression everyday within the Islamic Republic of Iran. Women are legally devalued in Iran and many have been treated as second-class citizens in their homes and communities.


Despite their suffering, Iranian women are encountering the love of Jesus and sharing their newfound freedom with others. Many of them are becoming powerful leaders and evangelists within the Iranian underground church movement.


Join us for this five-part series on the Jesus Speaks Farsi podcast where we’ll hear from some of the women spearheading this incredible movement.

THE FLOODGATES ARE OPEN

Today’s episode is the first in our second podcast series - “Women in Iran.” In this series, we’ll hear from three women about their extraordinary journeys to the Christian faith while living in a culture that systematically oppresses women.

Mojdeh, our first guest was born in Iran and raised in a Christian home before the 1979 revolution in Iran. She’ll be sharing how this event has significantly affected women in her culture.

Trained as a medical doctor by profession, Mojdeh eventually felt called into full-time women’s ministry. She was also a key member of the translation team that translated the Bible into modern-day Persian. For decades, Mojdeh has helped thousands of Iranian women experience the transforming power of the Gospel, as well as equipping them to reach other Iranian women with the hope of Jesus.

She was told to be quiet, to never laugh and to stay in her place. In this episode, we’ll hear how she ended up finding her place in the story God is writing for women in Iran.
