One evening, Iran’s Mohabat TV call center received a phone call from a man named Hashem. He wanted answers. Yet, through the course of his counseling, he received so much more.
Our partner Mohabat TV receives around 24,000 calls each month from those wanting to learn more about the gospel. Trained counselors are able to help talk callers through their struggles. An average caller receives six months of phone counseling to help manage various issues. Following the sessions, many callers want to know more about Jesus and the peace He offers.
This was no different when Hashem called.
Hashem shared that he was formerly a Taliban executioner, struggling with panic attacks and nightmares. It took time for him to fully believe that Jesus could help him:
“I used to be an executioner for the Taliban. Can even those who have killed in the name of Allah find peace and forgiveness in Christ?”
Mohabat TV’s team finally had an opportunity to pray for Hashem and read the Word to him. That night, for the first time in far too long, the former Taliban executioner slept in peace. In continuing conversations with his counselors, he began to experience more of the redemptive power of Jesus and now describes himself as a changed man.
Through telephone, interactive web communications, email, and social media, Mohabat’s counselors hear from seekers in every province of Iran, providing mental and emotional support for all who call.
Please pray for Hashem and Mohabat TV:
- Pray for the safety of callers, as they seek support.
- Pray for Iranians like Hashem, who think that they are too wicked to be forgiven.
- Pray for the safety of the counselors, as they provide support throughout Iran.
