How Open Doors Is Helping Iraqi Christians In An Amazing Way

September 18, 2014 by Open Doors in Stories of Persecution

14-sept-app-main Open Doors has been partnering with several churches in Iraq and surrounding countries to help Christians who are being targeted for their faith. The Chaldean Church in Erbil is one of those churches. “We have set up small swimming pools for the children and have a schedule of daily activities for the adults,” shares Pastor Douglas. “We do this to keep the people busy, so there will not be much time to worry. We want to make the people here feel welcome, to provide a sense that this is just their home for a short period of time. We do not want to call it a refugee camp for this reason.” Pastor Douglas shows that persecuted Christians do not need just their physical needs met, but are in need of emotional and spiritual support, as well. That is why Open Doors works with Christian leaders like Pastor Douglas to provide for every need of these persecuted Christians in Iraq, Syria and surrounding countries affected by ISIS and other extremist groups targeting Christians. Through providing refugee care, Bibles, Christian training, trauma counseling and other resources, we aim to meet all of their needs- not just their physical needs. Join with us in meeting ALL of these believers needs. Your gifts will be used to meet the most immediate needs of Christians being persecuted for their faith in this region.Please help us serve these believers as this need continues to grow. Open Doors
