Dear 222 Ministries Supporter,
Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year! We rejoice with you in celebrating the birth of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ and we ask Him to fill us with His joy and peace and empower us all to be His true ambassadors wherever we are.
With your support, the Lord has enabled us to train and equip over 500 leaders to propagate His Kingdom within Iran and amongst Farsi speaking peoples elsewhere. We are very excited that very soon work in our own new training centre in Turkey will be completed and we will have the capacity to train many more.
222 has Farsi-speaking churches in 12 cities in Turkey gathering several hundred believers and is planting churches in new cities. 70% of these believers came to Christ since being in Turkey and are impacting their families back home; this means new house churches established in Iran.
In March our evangelizing teams of 80 people spoke to over 3,600 Iranian tourists over Nowruz in Turkey. Over 1,100 responded and over 145 gave their lives to Jesus. In the past 12 months, 249 new believers were baptized in our churches in Turkey.
As we approach Christmas and enter the winter months in Turkey we are looking to assist over 600 of the most destitute Iraqi and Syrian Christian Refugee families with food, heating, and medical care, and are hoping to reach 1,500 Christian refugee children with Christmas gift packets. We cannot turn a blind eye to this need among the Christian refugees.
We continue to broadcast our Christian Farsi TV programs on satellite and this year we were able to broadcast live on social media channels, into Iran. Live broadcasting was a long time goal that was achieved and we are truly grateful for that.
We praise God for His provision that enables us to serve Him through people like you who support us in carrying out the vision He gave us. May our Lord richly bless you!
