Iraqi refugees in a church in Turkey.

Every Tribe and Tongue  

A congregation of primarily Iraqi refugees worships in coastal Turkey. The indigenous ministry leader who pastors the congregation's mother church reports that in the past three years many Turks and refugees have been saved from sin, death and eternal condemnation. In a country where being Turkish is equated with being Muslim, he has won the trust of local officials who tell him, "You're one of us," though he is a Christian. His church is also gaining the trust of refugees by providing clothes, medicines and firewood to all, regardless of whether they become Christians. "Maybe their children will remember the love they received from the church and come to Christ and live for Him in the future," he said. His church building is now overflowing, and another church has been planted in a nearby city. He thanked Christian Aid Mission donors, saying, "We are very grateful to you for your gifts and support, and also your prayers, so that we can continue this ministry." Please consider a gift to help the ministry bring healing and light to Turks and refugees.

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).
