New Countries Interested In Taking Refugees!
After moving the first 149 Christians out of Iraq, we are excited to announce that two more countries have contacted us about their interest in taking Christian refugees! We’ll hold the details until everything is finalized, but we wanted to make sure you heard the news. This is a huge win! If everything goes as planned, we will be able to effectively relocate more Christians who are fleeing persecution in the Middle East.
In the beginning, the first 11 countries that we approached about taking refugees immediately said no, but after seeing the success of our first group, a few have reconsidered. Praise be to God, our great Provider!
MARKED FOR DEATH
For those who don’t know, the Nazarene symbol has been used by ISIS to mark the homes of Christians in the Middle East. They are called Nazarenes because they are followers of Jesus of Nazareth. You can read more details about the symbol here. Much like how the Jews were marked with the star of David in Nazi, Germany, Christians are marked with the Nazarene sign as a way to segregate and discriminate against them.
But this sign used as a mark of death in the Middle East has now become a symbol of life and hope around the world for those who wish to help the persecuted Christians. It has spread like wildfire on social media, with people expressing solidarity and support by changing their profile pictures to display the symbol.
We are happy to use this symbol to bring hope and life to these people. Using the symbol to share our message and goal, we raised $13 million to evacuate Christians in Iraq.
Please be in prayer for the leaders of the countries who are considering taking in our refugees. Pray that they would have compassion on God’s people and be moved to help. Pray also that God would stir up the hearts of people in more countries to take action against this genocide.
