SUPPORT STRUGGLING BIBLE SOCIETIES IN

Iraq, Turkey, Algeria

THE CAUSE

Bible Societies are working in challenging countries such as Iraq, Turkey, and Algeria to bring Bibles to people there. All Muslim-majority countries, the Christian population in these places stands at one per cent or less. For those who are tasked with carrying out Bible mission in these countries, it can be an arduous and delicate balancing act to continue the mission with many hurdles and obstacles to overcome.

In order to remain operational, these Bible Societies rely on Bible Societies like ours from around the world to enable them to continue functioning. If these Bible Societies should ever close down, it is very unlikely they would be able to reopen again.

THE IMPACT

By making a gift today, here is the impact you will be having:

  •  With your faithful support, we hope to continue our journey in helping the Bible Societies of Iraq, Turkey, and Algeria. Your giving helps us in our endeavours to address Bible Poverty and encourage Bible Engagement in these countries bringing people the Hope of the Bible.

The Night ISIS ARRIVED

Sana, a Christian woman from Qaraqosh remembers well the night that ISIS arrived in her town. ISIS fighters divided the townspeople into men and women and loaded them onto buses. This was the last time Sana saw her husband and her two young sons alive.

“People like Sana need the full support of the Church,” says local pastor, Father Ammar. Partnering with local churches, the Bible Society of Iraq is training facilitators to run trauma healing programmes to bring healing to traumatised Christians, like Sana, in northern Iraq. The programme will also include Yazidis, another persecuted minority group.

Can you support the Bible Society of Iraq to remain operational so they can carry out this much-needed work?

Your gift will go towards helping cover their high rent costs, operational expenses and other challenges, such as electricity supply which is only available for two hours a day with the remainder coming from generators.
