Iranians are amongst the highest users of the Internet in the non-western world. In a country of almost 80 million people that’s a huge opportunity we cannot afford to miss. As with television, there are considerable efforts by the government to restrict accessibility to sites outside of Iran, but where the people are hungry, they will find a way – and they do!
222 Ministries is providing thousands of Iranian Christians with free downloadable teaching materials in text, audio and video formats. Our Farsi Christian Resource Centre provides teaching and training resources for any aspect of Christian life, and through the Farsi Christian News Network (FCNN) we are publishing the latest news and developments, all from a Christian view point (FCNN is also available in English – check out the newsfeed at the right of this page).
222’s Internet ministry serves just about every aspect of our work, from Children’s ministry, to Bible college, to Freedom in Christ discipleship course. It also enables us to share pre-recorded TV programmes and answer some of the many questions from spiritually hungry Iranians. Two of our latest developments in this area are Porpasokh and Dastanema.
Porpasokh (Plenty of Answers) provides biblical answers to questions of faith through its website and TV programmes, and if the answer is not already available on the site, the team will research and provide one. It is an essential resource for non-believer and believer alike to come and ask questions about faith.
Porpasokh.com has so far published over 600 questions with answers. We aim to complete 1,000 answers to key questions of faith by the end of 2017. Already we have seen hundreds benefit from the answers and as word is spreading, we believe thousands will come to visit our site and TV programmes.
Dastanema (Our Story) is one of our newest innovations for hosting and sharing short testimonies from Farsi-speakers of how they came to faith. The short films are ideal for social media and connecting with young people who want real, raw stories from people just like them.
Since its launch, the popularity of the site has inspired the development of different language sections (relevant to the various people groups of Iran) as well as a feature which enables the viewer to directly contact and enter into conversation with the person sharing their testimony, all monitored through the website.
Thank you for your excellent website. I am interested in Christianity because of the research I’ve done and would love to know more. Can you please put me in touch with a house church? I’m afraid to share my thoughts with anybody because of the limitations in Iran and I can’t trust anybody. Please give me some instructions. Porpasokh.com user, Tehran, 21
