Pray for Tajerah, Who Is Leading a Group of New Believers


When Iranian house church leaders heard about 18 new believers in another city who needed a leader, they immediately thought of “Tajerah.” Tajerah had been active in Christian work in her own city, so the leaders decided she was ready to take more responsibility. After praying about it, Tajerah eagerly agreed to quit her job and move to the other city in order to oversee the fledging group of Christians and help plant new house churches. House church meetings in Iran are risky, and church leaders are treated harshly when caught. Iran recently hired 7,000 additional “morality police” to monitor groups like house churches. Pray for Tajerah as she begins this new work.
