We have joined the world of social media and launched our Farsi Facebook page. The page is growing in popularity, and many of our Iranian contacts have learned a lot about Jesus Christ.
Our posts vary from day to day. We often promote content on the Radio Mojdeh website. Recently we promoted a two-part radio program series on our Youth Round Table discussions on the topic of persecution. We often include an intriguing photo to capture people’s attention. We always encourage our friends to share the web link with their friends if it has blessed them.
Another strategy is to pose a challenging question. For example, we might ask: Can Christian women dress however they like or wear any kind of makeup they like? The goal is to “stir up the pot,” as one of our producers puts it, and to get people to think. Other questions might center on Bible verses: What does the Apostle Paul mean when he says he can do all things through Christ Who strengthens him?
Or a beautiful photo and interesting description might lead our friends to a blog, perhaps based on a Biblical theme such as the narrow door.
Whenever our friends ask questions, our follow up department posts answers. If it is a confidential matter, we send private messages to the people. But after that we connect them with an email address for further contact and counseling.
The goal is to use Facebook to move people to our Radio Mojdeh website, satellite radio broadcasts, and mobile apps where they will find more information about the Gospel of Jesus Christ in written and audio format. Facebook is a cutting-edge tool that can be used to uniquely penetrate the hearts of the Iranians of today.
