THE MIDDLE EAST
A church is being born in Iran and the Middle East.
Millions of Muslims are coming to Christ.
God has placed us on the front lines of the greatest Middle Eastern harvest through the modern miracle of satellite TV programming which is the major vehicle God is using to set these people free.
Right now, the young church in Iran (Kamran’s birthplace) is blowing up and growing faster than any other (Operation World statistics).
Kamran came to know the love of the Father through several encounters with the person of Jesus Christ. Now he is a leading force in the salvation of his people through satellite programming. His show, “Lessons in Love” or ‘Darshe Esghe’ Is quickly becoming a favorite of the Iranian youth and Persian culture.
Suzy has traveled the world encouraging creative worshipers to be who God made them to be in their creative and unique giftings. Her shows, “Lessons in Worship” or “Darse Parastesh,” are a great encouragement to the underground church and worship leaders. Recently she recorded 9 episodes of, “The Voice of the Father” or “Sedaye Pedar,” introducing Muslims and new believers to hearing God’s voice and training them in the integrity of discerning what He is saying.
Currently we are recording some of God’s best teachers to do seasons of shows that will bring much needed healing and encouragement including topics such as the heart of the Father, hearing God’s voice, dream interpretation, and more. Many Muslims have spiritual dreams where Jesus and angels appear to them! These shows will change their lives and help them to understand and grow in the love of the one true God through their dreams and visions.
These cutting edge shows are repeated many times and are not only reaching millions of unsaved Muslims in their homes but are helping to shape and equip the fastest growing young church in the world.
shaping the sound of a spiritual revolution/ east meets west
We have just finished filming eight days of video footage for our project “Shaping the Sound of a Spiritual Revolution.” It went far beyond what we had hoped and dreamed into- we were all amazed! We will be able to edit this footage into 8 music videos, 1 two hour documentary, as well as eight 30 minute episodes for a docu-series called, “Ganj Nameh,” or “Treasure Letters.”
The videos will feature the music written, arranged and performed by our team of incredible poets and musicians including Luke Skaggs, Stephen Roach, Mohammad Gholami, Kamran and Suzy, Don Potter, Cassie Campbell, Michael Pritchard and William Johnson. After our first concert at Awake Church in Winston Salem, we were blown away by the response at this beautiful, fresh new sound combining Middle Eastern rhythms and chord changes and using the instruments intrinsic to this culture! With poetry sung in Farsi and English we created a moving sound that capture the hearts of Persian Muslims as well as anyone who hears it!
The documentary, “East Meets West, “ will be the unfolding story all the songs and the creative process we walked through together over a period of more than a year to bring this dream to reality. You will experience a group of Jesus loving, honoring friends who took time out of their beautiful busy lives to use their excellent gifts of music and creativity to honor and encourage a culture of people that have been stripped of all freedom and dignity.
The “Ganj Nameh” or “Treasure Letter” series will include 8 episodes, each one featuring a song, the story of the song, interviews, blessings over the nation and a letter to the Iranian people drawing our their creative and historical destinies that have been stripped from them. The land of Iran sits on a gold mine of unburied archaeological finds and treasure hunters are popular as well as illegal. Kamran’s own grandfather was a well known treasure hunter! This idea of a treasure letter will grab the attention of the nation and we will uncover the true treasure of the heart of who they are. We will continue to raise funds for this project for the editing and air time for the satellite programming. We would be honored if you would join us on this journey Click here to give! .
