An Asian Harvest$15.00
Leaving his home in New Zealand at age 16, Paul Hattaway found himself in Australia – homeless, hungry and lonely – sleeping atop the roof of a public bathroom. “A waste of oxygen” was his high school principal’s assessment of the lad.
After a fellow factory worker helped Paul to find faith in Christ, the young wanderer quickly became convinced that God was calling him to China. In 1988, Paul arrived in Hong Kong with nothing more than a backpack, a single contact, and $50 in his pocket. While there, he began to work as a Bible courier, carrying hundreds at a time across the Chinese border and under the noses of the guards.
Today Paul Hattaway leads Asia Harvest, the ministry he founded, which supports thousands of indigenous missionaries and has supplied over ten million Bibles to China, and millions more to Christians throughout Asia.
An Asian Harvest is his astonishing story.

Dr Hormoz Shariat
ONE MILLION MUSLIMS TO CHRIST.
In the mid-1980s, Dr. Hormoz Shariat and his wife prayed, “Lord, use us to save Iran!” His passion to bless Muslims stems, in part, due to the murder of his brother Hamraz, who was arrested in Iran at the age of 16 on a minor political charge. After two years in jail, the teen was executed by a firing squad. God showed Dr. Shariat that the best way to respond to this tragedy is to dedicate his life to bringing one million Muslims to salvation in Christ.
In his book, Iran’s Great Awakening, Dr. Shariat takes readers on a journey out of bondage to freedom in Christ. Learn what the Bible says about Iran and why this Middle Eastern country is right at the cusp of something big, eternal, and of a great historical proportion — something that is already unfolding! God impressed on his heart, “I am going to do a great work in Iran and change that nation forever, and I am giving you the honour to be a part of it.”
