"Pilgrim and Sojourner." - 1 Peter 2:11

 Unreached of the Day: Kurd, Southern of Iran

Kurd, Southern of Iran
The Persians, Kurds, and speakers of other Indo-European languages in Iran are descendants of Aryan tribes that began migrating from Central Asia into what is now Iran in the 2nd millennium BC. In present day Iran, Kurds express their cultural identity freely, but have no self-government or administration. During the 19th and 20th centuries, successive Iranian governments crushed Kurdish revolts. The Southern Kurds of Iran live primarily along the Iraq-Iran border in the Iranian provinces of Kermanshah and Luristan. The Kurds of this region make their living in much the same way as their relatives in Turkey and Iraq: farming and raising cattle and goats. Southern Kurds are primarily Shia Muslim, and this has created tension with Kurdish groups which are Sunni Muslim.

Ministry Obstacles
Access to Kurdish areas by outsiders is restricted.

Outreach Ideas
The Lord is calling many Kurds to himself, and there is a growing community of Christians among the Kurds. Pray these people will grow in number and maturity such that they will be able to effectively take the Gospel message to all Kurds.

Pray for the followers of Christ
Please pray for the Southern Kurds who know and follow Jesus, few in number. Pray they may be filled with joy and peace, and overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit.

Pray for the entire people group
Pray for peace in Iran between the Kurdish minority and the Iranian government. Pray also for adequate rainfall for crops and livestock.

Scripture Focus
"Therefore having overlooked the times of ignorance, God is now declaring to men that all people everywhere should repent, because He has fixed a day in which He will judge the world in righteousness through a Man whom He has appointed" Acts 17:30-31

 Re: Unreached of the Day: Kurd, Southern of Iran

Apart from the major cities of Tehran, Mashad, and Shiraz, most of Iran is comprised of villages all speaking different dialects of Turkish, Kurdish, Lorestan. Even in the cities, the only Jesus people know is the Jesus of the Koran, who is not Jesus at all.. Also, where there is access satellite( now most people have a dish), the Jesus they see is presented by money hungry televangelists bringing dishonor to His name.Yes, id say most of Iran is still ignorant to Jesus. So happy to hear there are a few Christiansin the southern region! Praise God!
