The pastor of an Iranian church in the U.S. is asking American Christians to pray for the church in Iran during this crisis.
Ashton Stewart grew up in Iran and he now leads the Iranian Christian Church in Colorado.
He said the harsh rule of the Islamic regime has led many Iranians to leave Islam for Christianity.
Many Iranians are coming to Christ through miraculous healings and visions of Jesus Christ.
He also said Muslims who turn to Christ are persecuted and jailed. Stewart said U.S. Christians should pray for the persecuted.
