Afshin was born in 1972 in southern Iran in a city called Abadan.

His earliest childhood memories was the islamic revolution in 1979.

When he was about 8 years old he remembers a plane flying

about 40 feet above his head and a few seconds later there was a

loud sound and the ground shook. This was the first bomb

dropped by the Iraqi Airforce. At this point they got into a car and

left everything they owned and went to a city about an hour

away. When the Iraqi's advanced they had to move four more

times before they had to leave the country in 1987. As a 15 year

old he crossed the dessert walking into Pakistan and witnessed

the poverty in Pakistan. From 1990-1992 he spent time in

Bangladesh as a missionary while waiting to move to Canada. He

is now the founding member of I AM Thirsty Ministries in

Vancouver. Afshin is married and have six beautiful children.
