For most of her life, Iranian viewer Yasimin* lived in fear of God and death. Her life changed forever after witnessing a miraculous transformation in her niece’s life. Now, through SAT-7 PARS, Yasimin and her family are growing in their faith daily.
“No amount of fasting or prayer dispelled my fear of God and death.” Yasimin remembers. “When I prayed I didn’t have any joy in my heart. It was all fear.”
Everything changed when Yasimin’s niece, Nasim, became very ill. Nasim, who had already been a believer for over 12 years, called out to God as she was en route to the hospital. With her body paralysed and organs failing, Nasim was ready to face death. But she heard God saying that it wasn’t her time and she still had a purpose to fulfil.
A transformational encounter
Nasim experienced miraculous healing and was discharged from the hospital. Intrigued by the miracle and Nasim’s strong faith, Yasimin experienced her own transformational encounter with God.
“Learning about Jesus brought joy into my life. It banished my fears because now I know that God loves me very much,” explains Yasimin. “I was set free, and now I finally know the true meaning of life with God.”
Filling a need
As new believers, Yasimin and her family are in need of encouragement and teaching, but they struggle due to a lack of Christian resources and churches in Iran. SAT-7 PARS is helping to fill this gap with 24/7 Christian programming in Farsi, the language of Iran.
“Thank you for your great programmes, which I watch daily. They are helping me to grow in faith and answering my questions,” Yasimin says. “I pray for the people of my country to experience, and be transformed by God’s love, just like me.”
