Uncertain Future  

An Iraqi youth waits for life to begin again in a camp for displaced people in Erbil, Iraq. Iraqi and U.S.-backed forces retook Mosul from Islamic State terrorists on July 9, but most residents have not returned because their apartments are in shambles or they fear the largely radical, civilian Muslim population will treat them as traitors. Need is still high for Christian Aid Mission donors to help an indigenous ministry provide blankets, mattresses, sheets, food boxes, medication, infant care items and Bibles. "The situation is so tragic that the government has asked non-governmental and humanitarian organizations to donate food because they can't meet the needs," the director said.

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).
