Christian leaders discipling new believers in Iran say that house churches are growing so fast they've needed to begin smuggling in tens of thousands of Bibles.

The Christians began training Iranian Christians to help them grow in their own faith and to be able to form churches on their own, Voice of the Martyrs (VOTM) South Africa reports.

In the space of about a year, the movement has grown to nearly 400 believers inside Iran and 82 house churches.

Less than 12 months ago, the leaders of the group realized the new Believers needed Bibles, so they began to bring them in from the outside. To date, they have brought in more than 20,000 Bibles for the fast-growing church in Iran. 

VOTM asks for prayer for the fulfillment of these believers’ vision to plant churches in all 31 of Iran’s states.
