Stop Criminalising Christians In Iran

by Colin Dexter

Iranian Christians are being treated like criminals for taking part in normal church activities…

…Pastor Yousef Nadarkhani and three others from his church received sentences of ten years or more.

…Mr Afshar-Naderi was arrested along with two others while at a Christmas celebration, and faces 15 years in jail.

…Hadi Asgari was arrested during a picnic and has been given a ten year sentence.

…Nasser Navard Goltape was one of four men arrested after three of them, who were from Azerbaijan, visited friends in Tehran.

Send an email to your MP and the Minister of State for the Middle East to stop the Iranian government criminalising Christians.  (CSW)

” I do not want to be a Christian”

by Colin Dexter

“You are so different; I can see that you are a new person,” she told him. When he explained that his life had been transformed by his relationship with Jesus and that she could  experience the same change, she replied, ” I’m  so happy for you, but I do not want to be a Christian.

She was invited to an event on the Logos Hope ship.

She attended the “come as you are” evening and after listening to the message she decided to surrender her life to Christ.

Testimony of The Lord’s Healing and Power –LN 27th July 2015

by Colin Dexter

I am writing this testimony to share with others God’s healing power and provision for my son. Daniel was diagnosed with spondylolisthesis grade 2 in 2010 when he was 18years old starting his first year at Warwick university. He had mild symptoms of discomfort running down the back of his right leg but it was not serious that time. However, in 2013, he developed intermittent numbness in his right foot and the MRI scan showed that his spondylolisthesis has progressed from grade 2 to 3 and there was narrowing of the spinal canal at l4-5 level which resulted in the numbness of the foot.

He was seen at the Royal London Hospital by the neurosurgeon who said that Daniel requires surgery to straighten and stabilise the spine which will be a major surgery. Daniel and I were deeply distressed by this news as it will impact on his studies in university. I told Daniel that we should not lose hope because we have a God who is ALL powerful and who can also heal. I then began to earnestly pray for the following specifics-
1. Complete healing of Daniels’ back so that he does not require the operation.

2. God will lead us to another surgeon who is dual trained in orthopaedics and neurosurgery. I wanted Daniel to have a second opinion and to be seen by the best in this field if he requires surgery.

Meanwhile, I brought Daniel to my bible study teacher E. Vetters for prayer and healing as I believe that the prayers of an effective man is very effective. Mr Vetters once told me that ‘healing begins when we start praying’ I believe my job is to pray and God will do the rest.

It was amazing how the Lord answered my prayers specifically. At that time I was working in the Outpatient department of a private hospital and heard of a new neuro-spinal surgeon who had recently joined the hospital. One day, the surgeon (AR) turned up at the door of my office asking to see me as he needed my advice to set up his clinic. I was thrilled and so overwhelmed when I discovered that his speciality was in treatment of spondylolisthesis! He agreed to see Daniel and examined him. By this time Daniel’s numbness in the right foot has improved considerably. The surgeon then told us the wonderful news that Daniel does not require surgery but just monitoring to ensure that his symptoms does not get worse. He also reassured Daniel that he can continue his gym exercises as the development of his strong core muscles has helped to support his back.

Daniel was reviewed last year in March 2014 and has been discharged from the Royal London hospital-which means he does not require any treatment at all. God is awesome –he has answered my prayers perfectly. I believe God has healed Daniel’s back problem. He is indeed Jehovah Rapha- the God who heals!
