Eifel Tower2Last week, terror attacks in Paris shocked the world, showing why Europe is so critical for reaching the Middle East for Christ.

Did you know there are more than 50 million refugees worldwide including 1 million Iranian refugees? This number hasn’t been reached since the second World War according to the UNHCR. Many of these refugees now live in Europe to escape persecution to live as they please.

According to Pastor Elham of Mohabat TV, we have now reached what is called 2nd Persecution!

She says that “some of the Iranian new believers [living in Europe] have not only gone through persecution by the Iranian government about their underground church activities, but have also experienced persecution again in their refugee camps. They are persecuted by other Muslims from other nations who are Islamic radicals.”

Getting more personal, she shared with Heart4Iran a tragic story of what 2nd persecution looks like in Europe:

“Just recently, ” said Elham, “In one of the [refugee] camps in Germany — two Iranian Christians who were attending a church on Sunday were attacked by radicals so severely that they both had to be hospitalized. One Christian, I heard severely injured their back!”

In spite of all these terror attacks happening in Paris, Germany, Iran, and around the world — Heart4Iran is introducing a new way to reach Iranians abroad through Mohabat TV EUROPE, which launched the same week as the terror attacks in Paris.

Heart4Iran believes the timing is no coincidence.
