Devotion to what they believed in

by afshinazad on

There are so many of these type of people were living in Iran and they were American missionaries and their devotion to what they believed in. In east and west Azerbaijan they have been since 1860 and they were not successful of converting people to Christianity and the main reason was there were so many ARMENIAN AND ASSYRIAN Christians in these two provinces.

The university and hospital in Urmia was built by American, whose name was JOSEPH COCKERN.

Baskervill also gets many honorable mentions is some Iranian fictions including Reza Barahani's novel " The Secrets of My Land" asrar sarzamin mn, Barahani calls him an anarchist , whereas he was a good christian, siding with the people. They don't make them like that anymore.
