We’re excited to have 125 Syrian and Iraqi refugee children in our program in Iraq. Of those children, 63 are sponsored. These children and their families are so grateful to be in the Refugee Child Sponsorship Program. This is a great, practical way to invest eternally into a child’s heart. Pray for our national team working with these kids.
Your support helps with food, a school uniform, backpack and help with school progress. Your help also brings the children together once a month for Bible lessons, games and songs. They hear the Gospel! Start your sponsorship today online at IndigenousMinistries.org, or call Sarah Rieger at our office at 719-302-3028. God bless you. Please do it today!

Unicef states that 14 million children are affected by the conflict in Syria and Iraq. What we can do, we must do!
Are you going to shoot me? These were the words of a young boy earlier this month in Syria, now dubbed the “ISIS Cub,” as a soldier from the Free Syrian Army aimed a gun at him. “Shoot him” said another soldier. It’s unknown what happened to the boy. Barely 11 or 12 years old, children in the Middle East, like this boy, are being recruited as child soldiers, and we know from firsthand accounts told us many times, ISIS regularly showed toddlers and children beheadings and beatings to de-sensitize them. Help us change a child’s future for good!
