Arad from Iran rang SAT-7 to tell us his story:
“I want to share a testimony with you about how God has helped me to forgive the murderers of my son. When my son was killed a few months ago, my heart was filled with hatred and I wanted to take revenge. However, when I heard about Jesus’ crucifixion on the cross and his prayer for the people who killed him and persecuted him -“God forgive them for they don’t know what they are doing” – I was very impressed. I asked Jesus to give me the strength to forgive the murderers of my son and He helped me.
“I was so changed that I went to see one of my relatives who was involved in my son’s death. I hugged him and told him that I had forgiven him. When everyone asked me what had happened in my life, I started to talk about Jesus who changed my life and helped me to forgive others as He forgave us.”
