Jack Graham - Iran Alive
A couple of weeks ago today we were in Germany. Jarrett Stephens and I, along with some others, preaching in churches, training pastors. And we preached in a church in Cologne which is the fourth largest city in Germany; it's a beautiful city. I'd never been there. And preached at a great church, about 7-800 people, through a translator. It was a lot of fun, we saw a response. And then in that afternoon we had a service at 2:00 o'clock with the Persian congregation of this church.
So when I was walking into this service and Pastor Jarrett Stephens was preaching that service in the afternoon, but when we walked in about 70 Iranian people, some Afghan, I don't know how to describe it other than the fact the way Jarrett described it last week, they just sort of mobbed us. I mean just all over us. And I'm asking the pastor, I said, cause they all seemed to know me as in really glad to meet me. I said, "What's going on here"? And he said, "You know, these are people that have come from Iran, they're former Muslims, they're here now. They're former Muslims who have come to faith in Jesus Christ". And I say this humbly and gratefully, but they said, "The person they listen to the most in Iran is Jack Graham".
And you, through Iran Alive, our ministry through PowerPoint with Pastor Hermos are preaching all over Iran to the people of Iran. And they love you! And I thought we had the greatest time. We were taking pictures and photos and doing the fun things, but to see them, to worship with them. Great worship! That's why I'm pointing out to you that there's never been a better time. And not just for Jack Graham, and a ministry like that. But each one of individual, that we can go places around the world. We can invest in our children. And the greatest thing you can do is to see your children, and their children rise up to be preachers of the Gospel, and missionaries for the Lord Jesus Christ. Serving the Lord in their churches, being a part of what God is doing in the world till He comes!
