Iran is one of the most difficult places to exist as a Christian. Their strict interpretation of Islamic law translates to imprisonment or death for believers. In Iran, Christianity is illegal, as is any Christian literature, including the Bible. Take a minute and consider that. Today, half way around the…

The Real Victims

There isn't much left of Syria today. The destruction to infrastructure is estimated in the billions, the economy has collapsed, and their currency has no value.
