Christians in the Middle East, especially in Iraq and Syria, have faced unimaginable suffering and persecution at the hands of ISIS. The extremist group targeted Christians and threatened the very existence of the Church in the Middle East.
But in spite of this suffering, many courageous Christians have decided to return. They want to be a light in the darkness in a desperate situation, now and in the future. They believe they have a vital role to play in rebuilding their shattered societies.
However, as Christians return to their homes and villages, they are faced with the stunning reality.
They must start all over again....
“Everything is destroyed…nothing we had is here anymore. Bombs fell on our house and roof. Our belongings were stolen, the balcony was destroyed. The house was in shambles,” Miriam, a believer from Syria, shares.
We asked Christians from Syria and Iraq what would give them hope. They highlighted three critical things:
1. The right to equal citizenship
2. Dignified living conditions
3. Involvement in reconciling and rebuilding their society
It’s vital that their call reaches the ears of world leaders so that change can happen on the ground.
This is only possible with support from around the world—with your support.
We are calling upon the Trump administration—as well as the United Nations—to take an active role in supporting these three core areas for our brothers and sisters in the Middle East.
One million voices can make this happen. Will you join with others around the world—including Christians in the Middle East—in calling for a hope and a future for Christians and others in that region?
Make your voice count. Please sign the petition today!
With your prayer and partnership, we will stand with Christians and others in the area and help them return to their homes, rebuild their churches, restore their communities and glorify the name of Jesus throughout the land— brick by brick, home by home and church by church.
