NOT on Vacation


Tens of thousands of Christians are among the more than 1.2 million people forced to flee for their lives in Iraq by the brutally violent militant group, Islamic State. The UN recently designated the situation a Level Three Emergency—the most severe possible rating for a humanitarian disaster.
We’re reaching out with the love of Christ to those who’ve run from Islamic State’s “convert-to-our-version-of-Islam-or-die” threats, and who desperately need food, shelter, water, and medical care.
Hundreds of thousands have sought refuge in the Kurdistan region, where we have a field office and where churches in the Kurdish capital of Erbil are partnering with us in welcoming and caring for refugees. We’ve set up hundreds of tents for displaced families and provided over 14,000 people with food. We’ve also distributed mattresses, cribs, baby clothes, shoes, pillows, and Bibles.
Your financial support and prayers are urgently needed for us to continue ministering in Jesus’ Name to Iraq’s suffering families. Please give generously today by phoning 1-800-663-6500 or clicking this button:

They are not taking a break
from full-time jobs,
three square meals a day

This is not
a wilderness' getaway'
or 'roughing it' play

No 'break-from-our-comfort-zone
See-if-we-can-do-it'

This is an 'only-by-the-grace-of God
-and His-people
will we get through it'

This is our call to prayer-and-share
with those greatly hurting
Come, all who care; we are called to bear
one another's burdens

A call to help persecuted Christians in Iraq just landed in my in-box. We have no excuses! by the click of a button we can help and share and bear their burden!

Carry each other's burdens, and in this way you will fulfill the law of Christ. Gal 6:2
