EXPANDING GOD’s KINGDOM AMONG FARSI-SPEAKERS
The church in Iran is growing the fastest among all Islamic countries. Although printed Bibles are prohibited in Iran and other Farsi-speaking countries, Mehr Reformed Ministries (MRM) is providing digital access to the Word of God, Reformed Biblical Resources and Discipleship Training for Farsi Speakers.
MAKING DISCIPLES AMONG FARSI-SPEAKERS
Mehr Reformed Ministries exists to provide biblical and theological training to the next generation of Farsi-speaking Christian disciples in Iran and the Middle East. Characteristic of a strong reformed tradition, Mehr is committed to restoring access and understanding of the Word of God to a resource-deprived language group.
Two Countries with Over 110 million Farsi Speakers
Why outreach to the Farsi Speakers?
Farsi is one of an important language of the Middle East and Central Asia, spoken by over 110 million people and ranked among the world’s top 20 most widely spoken languages. It is known as Farsi in Iran, Dari in Afghanistan, and Tajik in Tajikistan. Sizable minority populations in other Middle Eastern countries (Bahrain, Iraq, Oman, Yemen, and the United Arab Emirates) also speak Farsi, as do large communities in Europe, Turkey, Australia, Canada, and the United States.
The Apostle Paul saw a vision of a Macedonian calling out for help.
And a vision appeared to Paul in the night: a man of Macedonia was standing there, urging him and saying, “Come over to Macedonia and help us.” And when Paul[a] had seen the vision, immediately we sought to go on into Macedonia, concluding that God had called us to preach the gospel to them. (Acts 16: 9-10)
Persian people are calling out for help from those with a rich tradition of biblical scholarship and doctrinal teaching. It is a good time to heed this call!
