We support a couple with a Persian background who work within the local community.
Their story of how they first came to faith in Jesus as well as their subsequent ministry in reaching out to others in our region with a Persian heritage, has been a great inspiration to us.
They have a lovely gift of hospitality, often opening their home, providing meals, hosting gatherings, running Bible studies, having people to stay, and giving practical assistance to asylum seekers.
They can also be seen most Saturdays with a table in Oxford city centre as they, and friends, connect with passersby, giving out Christian resources and Bibles. It has been a delight over the years to host a number of baptism services for those who have come to faith as a result of this ministry.
