In our third episode of the Encounters with Jesus series, Dara Lynn and Jen will be speaking with an Iranian woman who leads worship for thousands of Farsi speakers and encounters God’s presence in more ways than just worship music.
Niloofar grew up in Iran in a nominally Muslim home where being a daughter was less valuable than being a son. When her parents became believers through a television program, Niloofar was sceptical. But, after seeing the transformation in their lives, she soon accepted Jesus into her own life.
Early in her faith, worship music was especially important to Niloofar, having not been allowed to sing in her former life as a Muslim.
Encountering Jesus through worship gave her hope after the grief of leaving Iran and has continued to take her on a unique spiritual journey as her faith has grown.
