Displaced Iraqi women and children.

Huddled and Waiting

Displaced Iraqis awaiting aid are among the many people to whom an indigenous ministry is delivering free Bibles during the Christmas season, including people in newly liberated areas after the defeat this month of Islamic State terrorists. "Christmas is the best time of the year in Iraq to offer the Bibles to all people," the director of an indigenous ministry said. "More public schools asked us to give gifts and the Bible with an explanation of what Christmas was and what happened at the birth of Christ. Hospitals have requested special programs to offer patients Christmas gifts and pray for them. Iraqi state television will broadcast documentary films about the life of Christ, and the shops and streets are full of lights and Christmas trees." Indigenous missionaries are praying to be able to buy 50,000 Bibles, New Testaments and children's Bibles to give away; please consider a gift to help provide them during the Christmas season, which in Iraq extends to Jan. 6.
