One of our contacts in Iran wrote the following poem and recited it to us over the telephone. Iranians have loved poetry for centuries and quote it to express some of their deepest thoughts.
This new believer sent us the thoughts of his heart in poetic form. The title may allude to the “hidden 12th imam” for whom Shiite Muslims are waiting. This man has come to understand that Jesus Christ is not hidden. Rather, He desires to come close to people, fellowship with them and make Himself known.
Despite the fact that the poem loses something in the translation, it is clear how much this man loves Christ.
