Episode 9: An impossible choice in Iran: Jesus … or freedom?

May 28, 2021 by Ryan Hamm in Podcast

In this episode, we hear from Taher and Donya (and their kids), Iranian believers who were forced to make an incredibly hard decision. Listen to them tell the story of the moment that changed everything. You’ll also hear updates on the COVID-19 pandemic, particularly how it’s affecting Christians in India, including some of our ministry partners.

Robert Kenna, who spent time with Taher and Donya, also gives some background on what it was like to meet and pray with these Christians, who now live in Turkey. You’ll also find out a way you can send them a letter of encouragement—to do so, visit OpenDoorsUSA.org/letter-writing .
