It’s been 40 days and 40 nights in Iran and the protests are not easing up. Thousands of people flooded the streets of Mahsa Amini’s hometown yesterday and boldly defied government orders by marching to her grave.
The Iranian regime is getting nervous and they are responding to the protests with deadly fire. Hundreds of protestors have been killed, but after 40 days, it is clear that the protestors are not backing down.
“Things are changing in Iran,” Naghmeh Panahi said over the weekend, during a BTJ conference in Dallas, Texas. “The protests are not going away and the government is scared!” Naghmeh Panahi is an Iranian house church leader who helps build up the church, distribute Bibles, and assists persecuted Christians. Naghmeh was one of the main speakers over the weekend at the BTJ Voices of the Persecuted Church Conference, where she called underground house church leaders live on the phone during her time at the podium and allowed the house church members in Iran to speak directly to those attending the conference.
The audience sat in silence as they listened to the shocking experience that the Iranian church is going through.
BTJ’s Voices of the Persecuted Church Conference raised more than $30,000 USD for Bibles in Iran. This month, BTJ is printing 10,000 Iranian Bibles.
