How the Gospel Spread Inside This Iranian Prison; It Will Stun You!

Mark Ellis : Oct 18, 2018  God Reports

"My prayer for all Iranians is that they hear the good message of Christ." -Mojtaba Hosseini

Like all Iranian Christians, Hosseini knew the risks involved with his underground activities, according to a report by Open Doors.

"Why didn't I stop my work for the Church after I was first arrested?" Hosseini asked. "I don't really know. There was no logical explanation, but we felt that the Lord wanted us to continue. We knew this would mean we could get arrested at any moment."
