I repented from my bitterness and the Lord saved me from it.
The day after the guard's conversion, two members of the Secret Police drove Hoospianmer through a blinding snowstorm and over a mountain pass to a Tehran jail. One became a Christian that night.
Eight more days of torture later, Hoospianmer was placed on probation, providing he reported every two weeks on all church activities, and that he did not speak to Muslims about Jesus. While there, he started three churches among Armenians and Iranians, but moved to California because "The Lord showed me in California one million Iranians," Hoospianmer said.
He's been back in California for three years. I researched and see that it is the right denomination and solid base for starting churches. In addition to starting churches for Iranians , Armenians and Jewish Iranians , Hoospianmer for six years has had a thriving, three-program ministry on public access television.
He preaches in Armenian, Farsi and English. At least families have contacted him because of the television ministry; many go to non-Southern Baptist churches because of the lack of Iranian or Armenian SBC churches.
But Hoospianmer has a plan to address that. Iranian Christian Church in Glendale consists of members, 98 of whom are refugees; he's baptized 26 in the last year.
Armenian Christian Church in Glendale they share the same building consists of 25 Muslim converts. He has identified 26 budding leaders among the congregations; six are attending the Brea Campus of Golden Gate Baptist Theological Seminary.
His plan is to identify leaders, train them, and send them out to start new congregations. Hoospianmer has another plan. He envisions a training center where people called to work with Muslims can spend six months in ministry with him in Los Angeles.

Daily infusion of the language and culture of the Middle East would help acclimatize missionaries so they are ready to start work when they reach their overseas assignment area, he said. God has called me to live to reach them.
Later, with the help of his family living in Sweden and many praying Christians, he was miraculously given permission to reunite with them after 15 years of separation. From there he focussed all his energy to awaken society to the plight and the needs of imprisoned Christians suffering for their faith.
