The day was blistering hot as we went with Pastor Abu-dani to the Jordan river, there to participate in the baptism of two Iraqi men of Islamic background. They had come to a saving knowledge of Christ and wanted to make a public profession through believers baptism! Pastor Abu Danni and Dr. John Cook baptized them by the historic site where John baptized Jesus.
“I could not sleep all night in anticipation for this day… I can not believe that the Lord has brought me to Him as his child and my sin forgiven.” As the pressure against Christians continues to mount, these two have committed “blasphemy” according to Islamic Law, and have laid their lives on the line for Christ…
These two men are excited about their Christ, are sharing the gospel and ministering to their fellow Iraqis in Jordan. One is even praying about a future in ministry with us! Pray with us for more believers, more opportunity for ministry, and more ability for ministry to the refugees in Jordan.
We will continue to share updates with you as we get them. Thank you for the prayers for the refugees and those ministering to them, and the generous financial gifts you are entrusting us with. We are aware this is a special trust and are working hard to make sure the funds are targeted to help as many refugees as possible. Your prayers are so very important. Please continue to pray.
T Shirts helping with AID: In the last email update, I shared a link with you; in case you haven’t had time to check it out, here’s a great way to join with us, make a donation and get a T Shirt:
Here’s a link for a business that sells custom T Shirts: PR127.com. They are donating half the price of each shirt purchased – with “We are …” next to the Indigenous Ministries logo in the middle of the page – to the Iraqi Relief Fund. Great idea! Thanks, PR127!
We invite you to respond to this crisis and reach out with Indigenous Ministries to our Brothers and Sisters in Iraq. Can you help us help them?
