Visiting Refugees in Iraq

The Voice of the Martyrs helps Christians who have been driven out of their homes by ISIS, a radical Muslim group.

Note: A radical Muslim group, the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL), has become well-known for their part in violence in Syria and Iraq. They changed their name first to “ISIS,” the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria. Then to emphasize their goal of creating a large Muslim nation, they changed their name to “IS,” the Islamic State.

Watch the video clip from a VOM worker’s recent visit with Christian refugees in Iraq. The refugees had to settle in a different part of Iraq after their area was attacked.

What do the refugees say they need from people around the world?

The VOM worker wrote the following thank you note to the brave Christians he met.

To Our Dear Iraqi Sisters and Brothers,

Thank you for standing strong for your faith.

Thank you for being an example for the rest of us.

Thank you for refreshing us by sharing how God has refreshed you.

Thank you for being willing to give up everything to follow Jesus, and for reminding us that He is worth it.

We thank God for you and your faithfulness.

We don’t want to turn our back on you; we don’t want to leave any of our family members behind.

We want to pull each other up. We want to draw strength from your victories, and to learn from your examples.

Together, we will keep our eyes fixed on the distant horizon, knowing that God is with us and He will never leave us or forsake us!

Sincerely,
Your Brothers and Sisters in America
