This week, I would like to share with you one of the most beautiful testimonies I have ever heard; that of Daniel Shayesteh.
Born in Iran into a Muslim family of twelve children, he grew up to become a strong ally of Ayatollah Khomeini. One of three men chosen to form Hezbollah, he fanatically pursued the radicalization of young Muslims and organized terrorist training camps. The aim? To destroy Israel and America.
On becoming disenchanted with Khomeini and his clerical colleagues’ crushing of free thought and speech, he was instrumental in forming the first democratically elected government in Iran, which was opposed to the Ayatollah. However, Khomeini’s radical Muslim supremacy, ensured a crushing of the government and death or exile of all government sympathizers.
Daniel Shayesteh fled to Turkey, apparently losing all; including his wife and children. BUT, Christ found him, and ultimately his wife and children too.
In this vibrant testimony, you cannot but be filled with praise for the wonder of God’s saving power.
Two photos from the video stand out.
Watch the video. You will be captivated.
