Internet usage in Iran
continues to increase at a sharp rate, almost 48% in the last 8 years, a
phenomenal growth rate that surpasses other countries in the Middle East.
Thirty five percent of the population of Iran now uses the Internet.
Iran Alive Ministries
reaches this target audience through our Internet chat ministry bringing the
gospel message into Iranian chat rooms, to over 4,700 Iranians seeking answers
each month. At the same time as the broadcasts, the Iran Alive website and chat rooms are drawing thousands of viewers.
Our Farsi website offers
various resources including: books, Bibles, audio lectures, music, TV programs,
testimonials, and frequently asked questions.
Through live chat rooms
called “Paltalk” and Telephone call centers, individuals can immediately engage
in live conversations with trained counselors – many of whom converted from at
Muslim background to Christianity. They understand exactly what kind of
questions viewers are struggling with on a daily basis.
Many are fearful of
venturing outside their homes with their new Christian faith because the
government police might be watching. Viewers secretly watch the TV broadcast
and communicate with Iran Alive in secure, undisclosed locations.
