Iraq: Fallujah refugees are coming to Christ

Many of my friends have been posting very compassionate things about the poor, traumatized peopole in the Middle East. I applaud the love and care of the people and have an article you might want to read about evangelism there. 

I suggest we think how to take some action steps quickly. We are helping refugees as well as PRE-Refugees". Pre-Refugees are the millions of displaced people persecuted and traumatized by terror and war that are not currently escaping to the West. We are helping them. Now! 

You can help by supporting us and other missions in that region. 

Frontiers published an encouraging update on the situation in Fallujah, Iraq, the town under ISIS control that was reclaimed by Iraqi troops last Summer. Thousands of people from Fallujah had fled to a nearby refugee town dubbed the City of Refuge. Frontiers USA tells us that in the last 18 months, through the work of indigenous missionaries, over 140 people in the City of Refuge have accepted Jesus Christ as their Savior.

As Iraqi forces work to secure Fallujah (the city still suffers from ISIS suicide bombs) and resume public sanitation, Frontiers’ President Bob Blincoe says some of these new Christians want to go back to their homes and share the hope they’ve found through Christ. “They have a mission and have been baptized, which is a real step of faith in the Muslim world.”
