Mohamad Faridi was born and raised in a devout Muslim family in the country of Iran. After years of faithfully following the Muslim faith, his goal ultimately became to be a martyr in Jihad. This all changed after a divine encounter with Jesus Christ in Iran. He made Jesus his Lord and Savior and started sharing the Gospel with fellow Iranians. As a result, he faced persecution and had to flee the country for his life. In 2012, he took refuge in America. Mohamad is now the President of Iranian Christians International, an organization that has been faithfully serving Persians for 40 years. He and his wife Susan reside is Colorado Springs, where they pastor the local Iranian Church.
