From Smuggling Drugs to Smuggling Bibles

[194] prayers in [14] nations have been posted for Former Drug Smuggler.

A former drug smuggler became an evangelist after meeting Jesus. The man’s father was an Islamic leader who groomed his son to become an Islamic cleric. However, the son abandoned the path his father intended, turning to alcoholism and drugs. He also became involved in drug trafficking. Along the way, someone shared the gospel with this lost soul, and God transformed his life. Today, this man smuggles God’s Word into Iran and distributes it to various villages. He and another man have started 19 house churches in the area where they work. Pray for God to continue to raise up faithful laborers of integrity with Titus and Timothy characteristics in Iran.
