and his face lit up. He had no idea that something like that existed.
An extremely intelligent man, his Bible knowledge is such a short period
of time is phenomenal. He was overjoyed exclaiming how much he would be
able to accomplish in his studies with a book such as that". They
continued; "Last Sunday we hosted for the first time a Bible Study for
Iranians. Seven people were there. Five of them were hearing the
gospel for the first time. One new believer who was baptized a few weeks
ago, brought them. Four of the five were so excited about what they
heard that they asked to attend the Evangelical Church that afternoon.
The next meeting is scheduled for the first of December. We hope to
begin hosting this meeting weekly beginning in January. The wife of one
of the men after the service at the church said that she was most

that these 4 women sang perfectly, but that they were so happy. She said

- A group of Peruvian Christians PWO
missionaries met while in Peru write:
- "We have been praying for the Persian
Nation, the Iranian people who live here in Peru and for many people
related to this Ministry. Pray for our sister who learned Farsi in
Japan. Our sister who spent time among Iranians in Italy. Our
brother who received God's calling for this nation and me who also share
this calling for those who do not know Christ as Lord and Savior.
We have been in prayer for you and for Iran. We are still learning the
Farsi. Our sister has received God's confirmation of the Calling for
the Missions for her church. I'm studying at a Bible School, here. Our
brother has been given the opportunity to share his faith in God with
another woman and this girl. This brother has given each one of them an
Injil in Farsi. It's exciting what wonderful things God has done during
this year. Prayer to our God and Father is to obey Him and to Hear
clearly His voice to share the God News of Eternal Life in Jesus Name.
We'll be gathering twice a month and we're aware of the PWO Prayer
Request for this month. One of our desires is to acquire the language
through messages and music, in order also to share them with our
contacts here in Peru. And of course, to be able to Open the Holy
Scriptures in Farsi, and to Preach and to Pray in the Farsi Language.
May Our GOD JESUS BLESS YOU RICHLY and MAY HE REVEAL HIS WISDOM AND HIS
PERFECT AND GOOD WILL FOR YOUR LIVES, and FOR YOUR MINISTRY. In Christ,
we love you, and we thank you for having come."
- Pray for a man who ministers in this
country. He reports an estimated 100 Iranians there and
does not know
any Iranian believers.
An Iranian family was scheduled to leave
for permanent residency in Canada on November 25.
Former Muslims from Iran, they became Christians when they were married,
22 years ago. Under Iranís strict Islamic regime, Muslims who convert to
Christianity can be executed for apostasy. So, after enduring growing
harassment by secret police, the family fled to Turkey. There they were
denied formal refugee status and last April denied immigration to
Canada, making them vulnerable for deportation back to Iran. The family
will not be deported to Iran, but flown to Canada. There, an Anglican
church in Toronto pledged full sponsorship of the family. Praise the
Lord! Rejoice with us for the mighty work the Lord has done in this
familyís life. He is so good and powerful. Please pray for the family as
well, as they prepare for their new life.
