BEFRIENDING PERSIAN BELIEVERS
Every month, SAT-7 PARS receives hundreds of messages from viewers in Iran, Afghanistan, and Tajikistan.

HELPING CHILDREN GROW UP ROOTED IN GOD’S WORD

The Cost of Celebrating Pentecost
Pentecost has special significance for Somayeh*, because it was the day that she became a Christian. It was also the day, several years later, when she was arrested for worshipping Jesus. This was the start of a journey that led her to flee her home country of Iran and seek refuge in Turkey.
Love Is… Giving Strength
In Iran, many believers cannot worship openly for fear of persecution. They must hide their faith, and often do not have contact with other believers or access to Christian resources. Yasimin*, a viewer from Iran, called SAT-7 to share her experience.
