Real Thanksgiving Includes Our Enemies There's a reason the Lord instructed us to pray for those who "spitefully use you" and to "bless those who curse you" and "do good to those who hate you."

Christmas in Iraq  

Iraqis displaced by Islamic extremist atrocities have arrived by the thousands in northern Iraq's autonomous region of Kurdistan, some in camps such as this one and others in abandoned buildings or dilapidated apartments. Last December an indigenous ministry in Iraq held three Christmas parties for displaced children, with about 500 children attending each one. All children received Bibles, and those who made decisions for Christ are now attending Sunday schools in tent churches. Preparing for another Christmas outreach this year, the ministry seeks 30,000 New Testaments in Arabic, Kurdish and Aramaic ( $2 each) and 10,000 children's Bibles in Arabic and Kurdish ($5 each), as well as Bibles for adults interested in Bible study. "We are preparing to reach the displaced people and locals from Muslim, Yazidi and Kurdish upbringing, and also [nominal] cultural Christians, with the Word of God," the director said. "We also provide the children with a small gift. We need 8,000 Christmas gifts [$5 each] for this year's evangelistic outreaches. Having the Christmas gifts will help us arrange Christmas events and parties to invite kids from all over the area and tell them about Christ and His birth story."
