God Is at Work in the Hardest Hearts

[234] prayers in [17] nations have been posted for Secret Believers.

Many Iranians have lost faith in Islam, and a VOM contact reports that even some government officials have given their lives to Christ. Recently, an official in Iran’s secretive religious police unit came to faith in Christ through the witness of a Christian family member. The official had been investigating one of the many house church groups that meet secretly throughout the country. And when he learned that a family member was part of the group, he angrily confronted the person. But over time, his family member’s gentle witness and loving behavior changed his heart and mind, and the official eventually placed his faith in Christ. Today, he maintains his role inside the religious police, but he tries to protect Christians. Praise God that he is moving in the hardest of hearts.
