Iranian New Year Celebration

The Iranian New Year (Nowruz) this year was on Monday the 20th March. This is a very important time for Iranians all around the world. The New Year lasts 13 days and ends with a picnic on the last day called Sizdah Bedar. The last Wednesday in the year before the New Year, Iranian Celebrate a day called Chaharshanbe Suri. Wilson and Dorothy once again opened their home to the Iranians on this day to celebrate Chaharshanbe Suri. There were around 100 people celebrating together. The Iranians themselves this year organised the celebration and paid for all the food. The event was co-ordinated by Dorothy M along with the Iranians. The rest of the Iranian Ministry Team supported them wherever was needed. This year they made it extra special by having Fireworks. This is a good event to invite Iranians who do not attend the Iranian Services and Bible studies. Nowruz was on the same day as the Iranian Service and was held in Windsor Presbyterian Church organised by the Iranians. The Iranians put a lot of work into this, as they wanted to share part of their culture with the people in Windsor Presbyterian Church.

Iranians who have received their Status


Some of you will remember Ali who we baptized in South Hill Church in May last year. Ali was in Tralee for a few months and then sent back to Dublin. This was a miracle, as the government doesn’t normally do this. We are pleased to let you know that in January Ali received his status and is now able to live in Ireland permanently and start his new life. He has become an integral part of Immanuel Church, serves on the welcome team and has shown his commitment by helping Iranians when I am not available. He is also an important part of the monthly Iranian service in Dublin. Ali has recently found a place to live, obtained his safety pass and received his provisional drivers license. He is a carpenter by trade and is in the process of looking for a job.

Nassar & Masomeh

Are Shokofeh’s parents. They were baptized in September 2015 in South Hill Church. They received their status as well and are relieved and happy that they can also begin to freely live their lives in Ireland. They are delighted to be with their daughter, son-in-law and grandchildren. Nassar continues to write poetry as the Lord leads and is such a blessing to the Skype Church on Mondays by sharing his poems with the Iranians.

Ali Reza

Received his status and will be baptized in the next few months. I continue to have one to one Bible studies with him. He accepted the Lord Jesus Christ as his Savior and he continues to grow in his understanding of the Word of God. He has a job and is currently looking for a place to live. We will let you know when he will be baptized and we would love if you would be apart of this special day.
