Speaker: TAKOOSH HOVSEPIAN, was born in 1950 in Iran. As a child, she desired to spend her life in the service of God. In order to fulfill this hope she prayed that one day she would marry a pastor and her prayer was answered when she married Rev. Haik Hovsepian. However, Takoosh never expected the intensity of her life journey and the trials and struggles that arose from her marriage to Haik. He was 49 years old when he left the house one morning never to return again. After twelve days it became apparent that he had been killed at the order of the Iranian government. Takoosh struggled in the midst of hardship and suffering, but eventually learned the true meaning of forgiveness. She has spent her years thereafter encouraging persecuted families and widows, as well as sharing her testimony in Western churches to shed light on the persecuted church and encourage prayer support.
