Drawing Life  

With help from a student aide for an indigenous ministry in Jordan, a young refugee girl from Iraq expresses repressed feelings about atrocities by Islamic State terrorists. The director of the church school offering education to refugee children noted that a 7-year-old Iraqi girl had difficulty concentrating, a common symptom of Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD). Also speech-delayed, she needed a student aide to help her adjust after the ordeal of escaping Iraq with her mother and brother. The family had spent a year sleeping on the streets and in parking garages. "Since starting at the church school, she is a lot happier," the director said. "In the classroom she is happy to participate with the other students. Having a student aide/teaching assistant enables her to participate without distracting the rest of the class." The ministry needs eight aides for eight traumatized children at a cost of $1,500 per month for all eight assistants – also refugees who benefit from the employment.

Christian Aid Mission is a 60-year-old non-profit organization that equips native missionaries around the world. We serve as a non-denominational foreign mission board that assists more than 500 ministries overseas with tens of thousands of indigenous or native missionaries in the field. These ministries are currently engaging more than 1,000 unreached people groups in more than 100 countries around the world. Our mission is to establish a witness for our Lord in every tribe and nation (Matthew 24:14) by assisting highly effective native missionaries and our focus is on reaching the unreached for Christ in areas in the world where there is no witness for Christ, where foreign missionaries are not allowed, or where Christians suffer because of poverty or persecution. Christian Aid Mission is generally considered to be the first U.S. organization to assist and promote native missionaries overseas. Since 1997, Christian Aid has been a member of the Evangelical Council for Financial Accountability (ECFA).
