Dr. Shayesteh was born into a Muslim family in Northern Iran. He found renewed faith in Islam throughout his university years, becoming a radical Muslim leader and teacher of Islam in the militant Free Islamic Revolutionary Movement, closely supporting Ayatollah Khomeini in his ultimate rise to power. They successfully achieved the exile of the Shah (king of Iran) putting into power the Islamic Fundamentalist Government. However, after falling out of favour with Khomeini's political group, he escaped to Turkey where there began an amazing journey to faith in Jesus Christ.
