"I want that! I want to be saved right now!” the Persian woman shouted out during the church service, interrupting the speaker.
This woman followed Christ as her Savior after only a few weeks of attending services at the Oasis Refugee Center. She started coming to the center to study English as a Second Language and then began attending a women’s church group and seeker’s class. She came to church because of relationships built through English class and how she has found Christ and is being disciples by Persian believers.
Your gift to the Oasis Refugee Center will enable long-term personnel to connect with Persians through training seminars and much-needed Greek and English classes for refugees. These programs opportunities for relationship building and evangelism. Your partnership will also fund discipleship and leadership training for Persian believers. God is moving and drawing Afghans and Iranians into relationships with Himself. Give today to spread his fame to Persian refugees who are searching for the hope and love only Christ offers.
From the mountain peaks of the Caucasus to the steppes of Kazakhstan, the heartland of Asia is a place of mystery, having been mostly off-limits to travelers for the last 2000 years. With its blue-domed cities, frenetic bazaars, and remote yurts, Central Asia captures the romance of the Silk Road. Ancient traditions, loyal relationships, and generous hospitality make up the foundation of Central Asian values. Once home to the early church, Islam is now the predominant religion of Central Asia. Architecture, dress, and cultural expectations are all marked by it's influence.Political, religious, and cultural divisions have fractured Central Asia's governments and global relations. This instability has left people seeking an anchor for hope and peace. Jesus is their peace, but most of Central Asia's 365 million people have no knowledge of the gospel.
Pray that as Central Asians will meet the life-giver and Prince of Peace so they can experience the abundant joy that Jesus offers.
