THIS WEEK’S EPISODE

MIDDLE EAST: The Moment He Accepted Christ
24 MIN

What does your church do to help new believers grow in their faith? Imagine how much more difficult it would be to disciple new Christians if you couldn’t meet together in person, or if they couldn’t admit openly that they were now following Christ for fear of persecution?

“Brother Mark” works with Christians in 22 countries in North Africa and the Middle East, and he will tell us about the persecution faced by Christians in Muslim nations of that region.

We’ll talk about the new reality in Sudan after the overthrow of Omar al Bashir and his Islamist regime. There is more freedom for Christians—but still threats against the church.

What is the journey new Christians must make in order to be ready to face persecution and respond with forgiveness, love and hope? How is their identity, and their place in the culture, affected by their decision to follow Christ?

Brother Mark has been with us before on VOM Radio; you can listen that episode here.

  • MAURITANIA: Pray for Christian Prisoners

    “Brother Mark” is active in gospel work in North Africa and the Middle East. Listen as he shares how coronavirus impacted ministry work in those regions—actually increasing interest in the gospel and online contact with curious Muslims.

    Brother Mark will talk about his own testimony and share how God called him to reach Muslims for Jesus. He’ll advise listeners on how to respond—not react—to Muslim questions or arguments against the gospel.

    Brother Mark will describe the persecution against Christians in the North African nation of Mauritania, and the challenge of discipling new believers in a country where it’s not safe for more than 15 people to meet together. He’ll also talk about two Christians who are currently in prison in Mauritania and invite listeners to pray for these men and their pregnant wives.

  • MISSIONS: Our Lives Do Not Belong To Us

    Al Shabaab is advancing in Northern Mozambique, attacking and killing Christians and others.

    Will Hart leads Iris Global, which works to share the gospel in 34 nations around the world. We’ll focus this week on Africa, and especially Mozambique, where radical Islamist terrorists are taking territory and targeting churches and Christians.

    Will also shares how God radically saved him and sent him to the nations. He’ll talk about overcoming fear as he and his wife went to minister in the Congo—at the time one of the most dangerous countries in the world. Listen to how God protected them, even providing elite military guards to watch over them in the country.

    He’ll also advise those sensing a call to missions and equip us to pray for the nation of Mozambique.

    Connect with Will and Iris Global through their web page, YouTube channel and Instagram.

  • God Is Setting His Throne in Iran

    Dr. Hormoz Shariat, the founder and president of Iran Alive Ministries, and his wife Donnell are back with us this week to finish our conversation about how God called them to share the gospel with 1,000,000 Iranians—a calling that grew out of a family tragedy and great loss.

    Hormoz will tell us he’s not a “natural” evangelist—he calls himself a shy nerd—but says God has given him strength and boldness to share the gospel. Listen as he describes getting laid off from his job and voted out by his church as blessings that unlocked the doorway to greater seasons of ministry.

    Hormoz will also share current needs of the church in Iran, equipping listeners to pray specifically for that country and for our brothers and sisters there.

    Hormoz’s new book, Iran’s Great Awakening: How God is Using a Muslim Convert to Spark Revival, released last week.

  • Iran's Great Awakening

    Iran's Great Awakening

    August 29, 2020

    Dr. Hormoz Shariat was among thousands of Iranian Muslims marching in the streets of Tehran during the Islamic Revolution in 1979. Today, he’s “The Billy Graham of Iran” with a vision to reach one million Iranians for Jesus Christ. He tried Islam, but says it didn’t work to meet the needs of his heart and life.

    Hormoz’s wife, Donnell, was born in America, yet she too was marching in those streets after moving to Iran—and converting to Islam—to marry Hormoz.

    Today Hormoz leads Iran Alive Ministries, one of VOM’s partners in spreading the gospel to the people of Iran. Listen as Hormoz and Donnell tell the story of how God changed their hearts—and saved their marriage—through the love of Jesus and the faithful witness of His followers.

    Hormoz’s new book, Iran’s Great Awakening: How God is Using a Muslim Convert to Spark Revival, releases this week. As a VOM Radio listener, you can receive a complimentary copy when you make a donation of any size to Iran Alive Ministries. Donate online and request your copy here.
