Iran

A Land Rich in History

Iran became an Islamic Republic due to the Islamic Revolution in 1979. Despite waves of resistance through the years,
the Islamic Republic still stands to this day. However, over the last three decades, many people have come to faith in Jesus
Christ. Very exciting, isn’t it?
