Pirooz went to a Jewish school in Tehran, where he learned Hebrew, English, and Farsi. Pirooz remembers praying the Shema and openly talking to God as a child. In his family, things were out of sorts: his parents fought with each other, and one evening Pirooz had a tremendous earache. His grandmother instructed his father to bring a lamb, have the rabbi come and say a blessing, and then sacrifice the lamb. The family gathered, the rabbi prayed, and the sheep was sacrificed. Immediately, the earache went away. Pirooz remembers distinctively that the prayers over the lamb were for a wound, for sins.
Eventually, Pirooz moved to the United States for school and flourished in his educational and career path, becoming a software developer. Many of his clients were Christians and the fact that they talked about Yeshua like they knew Him personally was offensive to him. However, Pirooz was intrigued by their faith, and challenged since they knew more about his Jewish Bible than he did. So he started reading the Torah and read Isaiah 53. Immediately he thought of the lamb from all those years ago, and Jesus became real to him.
To not upset his family he stayed silent. However, when his son got in a serious accident, all Pirooz could pray was that God would bring his son back to him whole. With each hour his son improved. It was a miraculous healing. Pirooz is now so full of joy that Yeshua healed his son, he cannot remain silent anymore.
