It used to take me weeks or months working with Persians who were interested in Christianity to convince them to choose Christ.
For the older generations, the spirit of Islam lay heavy on them, a blindfold on their minds that prevented them from grasping the Gospel, truth, or often even logic.
The generation in their early twenties and younger often call or write to say, “I was watching your satellite TV program, and something in me said I need Jesus, and I’m ready.” No questions about Islam and Christianity. War and decades of harsh rule and sanctions have caused those in their thirties to early forties to name themselves the “Burnt Generation.” They can’t find jobs, they can’t afford to get married, and they have no future.
So the younger generation says that even if we work hard, that’s our future. With no future or greater purpose to live for, young people even as young as 12 and 13 fill the void with promiscuous sex and drugs.
Fox News reported an astronomical increase in Iranian citizens converting to Christianity in recent years.
Hi to all of you in ISN, Well , I have to say that I did meet my soul mate through your site and that is why I haven't renewed my membership.
He and I appreciate your time and effort to make this possible for us and others who are also looking.
Fear of Islam and fear of the government would paralyze them.
But young people in Iran are now so open to Christ. Young people under 25 look at their older siblings who have worked so hard to earn bachelor degrees, master degrees, and even Ph Ds and see that they are miserable.
