PRAISE: We are seeing quite a rise in attendance at the Persian church plants (in Canada) due in part to the sanctions being applied to Iran. Many are open to the gospel and some are looking for assistance without any particular regard for the gospel. But at the time of wide open doors for Persians. There is a real need for experienced shepherds and teachers. Evangelism seems to be happening quite spontaneously. We are very encouraged with the development of an organization in New Zealand that is very similar to Vision Ministries Canada. We are having regular opportunities to provide coaching to them and we are excited to see this development.
