Paul writes in 2 Corinthians 5:14, For the love of Christ controls us, having concluded this, that one died for all, therefore all died; and He died for all, so that they who live might no longer live for themselves, but for Him who died and rose again on their behalf. ESV
Sitting on the edge of the door of their tiny UN caravan in the middle of a massive refugee camp, the little boy stares out at another little boy riding a bike. He can’t go to school because he has no backpack, he has no bike. Behind him, his mother looks at him, tears streaming down her cheeks, wondering where their food will come from tomorrow. Dad has found some jobs, but they can’t depend on steady income; they all want to go home, but their home doesn’t exist. What can we do for this family? We can help them. Our motivation as Believers reaching out through national churches to refugees is that of Christ’s perfect LOVE. Nothing more, nothing less.
This month we are raising $10,000 to demonstrate Christ’s love for refugees in Iraq to send with our US team there next month. Would you like to join us? Please prayerfully consider a generous gift to this vital fund which allows not only practical aid for refugees, but also the sharing of the Gospel; God’s love demonstrated towards us through His only Son.
These resources will, like precious aid our Indigenous Ministries family has given, be distributed through our national churches in outreach to Christian and Muslim refugees. In Baghdad, our team reports many needy refugees they work with in refugee camps are so grateful for the relief help and are responding to the Gospel. Our teams will also be handing out plush animals with players containing the Bible.
