Christians Are Struggling to Survive in Iraq

September 21, 2011

An Indigenous Ministry that works in Iraq reports that Christians are persecuted and sometimes killed. Christians are no longer protected. Many have left Iraq. Future governments will not give Christians freedom. On the other hand, there is some good news. In the past almost all Christians in Iraq were nominal and biblical Christianity was almost dead. Now people are truly getting saved. Muslims who see the brutality of their faith are hearing the gospel and some are coming to Christ. The following reports are from one missionary working in Iraq. Content to follow traditional methods of sending our own members abroad, churches are generally unaware that our Lord has moved ahead in world evangelization and left us far behind.

Christian Aid continues to send help to this ministry. The missionary reports that there is a limited window of time to preach the gospel in Iraq. Funds are needed for Bibles and Christian literature.
