Pleasing God, Making Disciples of Jesus Christ

Iraqi Christian Couple Forced to Flee

After years of threats, attacks, and ostracism by their Muslim families, a Christian couple finally had to leave their home in Iraq. The Kurdish couple, who became believers in 2008, faced opposition from family members as soon as they converted to Christianity.

Although they were determined to stay in Iraq and share the love of Christ with their families, death threats from a brother earlier this year persuaded the couple that it was time to leave. Other believers helped arrange their move to another country in the Middle East, where they have since joined an evangelical church and shared about the importance of spreading the gospel among Muslims. “they have not stopped sharing their faith in spice of the cost that came along with this in their homeland”, a Voice of the Martyrs (VOM) contact said.

Pray for them as they continue to adjust, and thank God that the has walked with them in the valley of the shadow of death.
