Persian of Malaysia

Introduction / History
In the last few years many Iranians have come to live in Malaysia. There is help with work training and advanced education for them.

Relations are good between Iran and Malaysia. Iranians tend to be Shia Muslims while Malaysians are Sunni Muslims and converting from Sunni Islam to Shia Islam is not liked in Malaysia.

Many Iranians in Iran are business people, teachers and students. They speak Persian and Malay.

The Iranians are the largest partakers of the Second Home Programme that allows foreigners to stay long term in Malaysia.

Prayer Points
* Pray that as the Iranians read the Koran about Jesus they will then read the Bible and give their lives to Jesus Christ.
* Pray that God will give the Iranians dreams and visions leading them to salvation.
