Former Taliban Executioner Found Peace in Jesus

A former Taliban executioner who turned away from jihadism could not understand how Jesus could love him, a ministry shared, before he finally found peace.

Nazanin Baghestani, the program response supervisor for Mohabat TV, a ministry of Heart4Iran, told Mission Network News that one unforgettable call his team received was from a man who admitted to being an executioner for the Taliban terror group.

The man, who wasn’t named, spoke of experiencing nightmares and restlessness, but wanted to find out more information about Christ.

“It took him a while for him to actually realize that Jesus could help him,” Baghestani said.

“This was hard for him to understand. So while we’d talked with him, counseled him [he needed more time]. And eventually one night, after we’d prayed and talked with him and read the word, he slept. And that night he said, ‘That was the first night I could sleep in peace.’ And so he found himself actually trying to forgive himself.”

The man’s faith journey continued, and now he has found peace and freedom from his sins in Christ, the ministry added.

Hear4Iran added that many Muslims continue finding their way to Jesus, despite the severe persecution and hardships they face throughout the Middle East region.
