"Merry Christmas from Iran Alive!"

Hi Doves,
Thought I would share with you all about what God is doing through an  old friend, Hormoz and Donnell Shariat in their ministry into Iran.  It is awesome to see so many come to faith in Christ!   .......Patty Hayes

Subject: Merry Christmas from Iran Alive!
Dear Patty, 
We want to wish you a joyous and blessed Christmas. As we make our preparation to celebrate Christmas, we have reflected on the goodness and faithfulness of our great God. Over 40,000 Iranian Muslims came to Christ solely through our TV Ministry in 2010.

This year we have so much to be thankful for:

1. We are grateful for the staff members and volunteers who are coordinating the follow-up ministry. They are making a difference in the life of every viewer who contacts us.

2. We are thankful for our Iranian Christian TV Ministry. Many have come to faith in Christ, and thousands of Christian believers have been built up in the Truths of God's Word.

3. We are thankful for the doors that God has opened for ministry to Iranians through the Internet. Over 8,000 individuals a month have been mentored through our Internet ministry and discipleship programs this year.

As we come to the conclusion of another year, we continue to thank God for who He is and what He is allowing us to do. There is not a day that goes by that we do not reflect on His provision and the lives that we have the privilege of ministering to.

Merry Christmas and a blessed New Year,
Pastor Hormoz and Donnell Shariat
