(Middle East: Iran)
Elam was founded in 1988 by senior Iranian church leaders with a vision to serve the growing church in the Iran region. From the beginning, Elam’s passion was to train and equip Iranian Christians to reach and disciple their country men. In 1990 six emerging leaders arrived in England from Iran to begin their fulltime ministry training. They lived in a small, two-bedroom flat and used the kitchen as a classroom. Since then, Elam has seen many years of God’s faithfulness. By God’s grace, the ministry is growing and is being used to strengthen and expand the church in the Iran region in a significant way.

New Testaments, planning for the next 200,000
The cover of Elam's New Testament in Iran is famous. It is even recognised on public buses. Thousands have been given out by courageous Christians on crowded streets to busy pedestrians and on lonely country lanes to weathered famers. This year Christians around the world believe it is God's will to make it more famous and for more Iranians to know that it is truly the Bread of Life for their souls. Plans are in place for another 200,000 for the pocket New Testament to be printed and distributed. Much prayer is needed.
Please pray for:
• Necessary funds for printing of pocket New Testament
• Successful print run
• Courage and wisdom for those who distribute
