Reaching and Discipling Farsi Speakers
Jesus commanded his followers to “love your neighbour as yourself” (Mark 12:31) and there is no better way to obey this command than to share the good news of Jesus Christ in word and deed.
This lies at the heart of our vision and is expressed in our name: hamsayeh which means ‘neighbour’ in Farsi. While every person in the world is of course a neighbour, our focus is on one people group often overlooked by churches: Persians (whether from Iran, Tajikistan or Afghanistan). As well as concentrating on the Persian diaspora living in the UK, which is estimated at 400,000, in the last few years the ministry has expanded to those living further afield.
