The next day, she woke up in the hospital. According to Fox, "Her survival itself a virtual miracle."
“I was too scared to go home and the police came to the hospital to talk to me. Many people were helping me find a safe place to live, and I knew it was Jesus,” Parsan told Fox News. “And soon, the police called to tell me that they had uncovered a plot in which my abusive husband had planned to kidnap the children back to Iran. After that, we moved to Sweden, and the policeman told me that I have an angel on my shoulder.”
Without her husband, Parsan and her children lived in peace in Sweden. She was baptized as a Christian two years after arriving. In 2006, she was in a car accident that nearly killed her. At this point felt the unction to spend her life helping other Muslims come to know Jesus. She then studied to become a pastor and was ordained in 2012 in the Church of Sweden.
She now leads congregations of Muslim backgrounds, evangelized to Muslims, and trains others to do the same.
“Sometimes they come to the church because they are curious. Sometimes they are asylum seekers and sometimes they are just visiting from places like Iran and Afghanistan, so they secretly get baptized and then they go back," Parsan commented to Fox.
"I have serious threats at least a couple of times per year, a threat of a knife attack or a bomb attack," she adds. "I have a police officer attached to my case I can always call, and we have security during our services. I have other threats from my own distant family members... But for me, what I do is worth it."
Annahita Parsan says that since her ordination, she has been catalyst in over 1,500 Muslims converting to Christianity.
Parsan attaches this to her story, "I hope people out there who have lost their faith, will maybe hear my story and be inspired to come back."
