New Christian Business Launched by Widows in Iran

BTJ has just launched a new business in Iran for widowed women. The business is a special program aimed at giving widowed women a chance to earn a living and engage in ministry.

“You can see from the photos they are just starting and are hoping to expand [in the local] market,” Naghmeh Panahi reported. Naghmeh is working together with the widows in Iran to help establish a sustainable system for persecuted women. Christian businesses like the one that she has helped to start provides support, stability, and gives a sense of purpose.

Business as Mission has emerged as one of the most significant ministry platforms for Christians in Iran.

“Business is a great way for me to get a visa to Iran,” reported one Chinese missionary working in Iran this week. “Without a business visa I could not live in Iran.” The Chinese missionary in Iran cannot be named for security reasons, but there are many missionaries from China who are currently serving in Iran running ministry-based businesses like the one just launched for widows this week.

Dr. Eugene Bach is a known trouble-maker with an active imagination and sinful past. He has a PhD, but is not a real doctor, so please do not call for him during a medical emergency on an airplane when someone is having a heart attack. Eugene started working for Back to Jerusalem in the year 2000 after a backroom deal involving Chinese spies, the NRA, Swiss bankers, and a small group of Apostolic Christians that only baptize in Jesus’ name. He spends most of his time in closed countries attempting to topple governments by proclaiming the name of Jesus and not taking showers. From time-to-time he pretends to be a writer. He is not good at it, but everyone around him tries to humor him.
