Since the days of the Northern Iraq crisis began I have missed many hours of sleep, cried myself to sleep on other nights and wondered aloud how we could ever work together to rescue so many who have no voice, no defense and no hope in northern Iraq.
But God has done a miracle. With more than 100,000 individuals in our care and "Community of Hope" refugee camps offering protection, provision and shelter, a small ray of light has started to break through the darkness. And without the compassion and generosity of people like you, it would not have been possible. The days ahead are filled with challenges as we continue to rescue those who are perishing and to help re-build the lives of many. As we continue this work, I want to say thank you for joining with us in this miracle effort. The battle is not over, and the needs are even greater than when we began. If we continue to pray and give our best, I know that we can help change the world for those who so desperately need our help.
There is a verse from the Bible that has sustained and strengthened me, and I trust it will encourage you as well. "Now glory be to God! By his mighty power at work within us, he is able to accomplish infinitely more than we would ever dare to ask or hope." (Ephesians 3:20).
give now and let's
change the world together
