TN, USA. March 21 Think about this war from an eternal perspective, the all-important question is "what will the war in Iraq mean for the Gospel of Christ Jesus?" We believe that this war in Iraq will give an open door for the Gospel. The Gospel is
We want to bring the "bread of life" to the Iraqi people who have suffered for so many years.
God has been preparing a people to bring His Word to the Iraqi people. Since the first Gulf War, thousands of Iraqis have become refugees in Jordan. God has used this "Exodus" experience from their homeland to draw about 600 of them into the Kingdom of God. Many of these 600 Iraqi Christians in Jordan are trained to carry the Gospel to their homeland and ready to go when the doors are opened.
They need our help.
How can you help? In two main ways: prayerfully and financially. Prayerfully, you can help by praying for our Iraqi brother and sisters in Christ. Pray for wisdom, protection and provision. Financially, you can help by giving to The Iraqi Bread of Life Project in order to support the families that will be returning to Iraq. Your financial gift will be used to help with the food, travel, and ministry needs (like literature and Bibles) of the Iraqi Christian families.
Other NGO's (non-governmental organizations) will be working with general needs of the Iraqi people. Advancing Native Missions' focus is on supplying the physical needs of the 600 Iraqi Christians in order to help equip them be Christ's ambassadors to their countrymen in the refugee camps now and to their nation after the conflict is resolved.
Gifts for the Iraqi Bread of Life Project can be sent to Advancing Native Missions. Checks should be made payable to Advancing Native Missions and clearly designated (in the memo line, for instance) for the "Iraqi Bread of Life Project." If you prefer to give on-line or would like information about ANM, visit us at http://www.adnamis.org
May the Lord bless you as you bless others.
