ORH this evening received this new message from the church in Baghdad by Edgar Faghaly.
Please read the report and rejoice in the Lord. As more information is made available, ORH will send it to you.
“Three hundred and fifty Iraqi families who lost their homes and everything they
own, were flown by the Iraqi government to Baghdad.! !
Our church in Baghdad prepared a box filled with major staples. In addition to the box we purchased a blanket and a pillow plus other things they need. We announced that in order to receive the aid they need to pick it up from our church during the service. ! !
Last Sunday the church was filled with people who heard the gospel for the first time. Everyone received his package plus a Bible or a New Testament in Arabic. Among the refugees who came were 12 Moslems. Many of them commented that we are the only church in all of Baghdad that thought of their tragedy and prepared aid for them. They expressed gratitude to all who helped make these aid packages a reality. Many of them raised their hands for salvation at the end of the sermon. !”
Operation Renewed Hope will be sending more funds to help this great effort by the Baghdad church. This is a great opportunity to give the gospel where it cannot be heard.
Continue to pray for these displaced people who need Jesus. Pray for those who are fleeing because they believe in Jesus.
