“…the street shall be built again, and the wall,
even in troublous times.” (Daniel 9:25)
While others may see only the massive turmoil going on in Syria and Iraq, we see things through a different lens, that of God’s Word. Before I write further I’d like to remind my readers that our team is, “Right in the thick of it.” The fighting has come within mere miles of the Kurdistan boarder. There are now a MILLION REFUGEES within our borders. These include Syrians and Iraqis, Christians, Muslims and Yezedies. Religiously, these people are traditionalists. The violence and almost unimaginable brutality they’ve witnessed at the hands of the ISIS Forces have shaken their world. Most were forced out of their homes with no more than the clothes on their backs. Far too many have witnessed the savage killing of family, friends or neighbors. These uprooted people are, in this crisis hour, very open, pliable and willing to listen to the Message of Jesus Christ. While others are proclaiming the extinction of Christianity in the M.E. we are declaring its rebirth.
“Sing, O barren, thou that didst not bear; break forth into singing, and cry aloud, thou that didst not travail with child: for more are the children of the desolate than the children of the married wife, saith the LORD.
Enlarge the place of thy tent, and let them stretch forth the curtains of thine habitations: spare not, lengthen thy cords, and strengthen thy stakes;
For thou shalt break forth on the right hand and on the left; and thy seed shall inherit the Gentiles, and make the desolate cities to be inhabited.” (Isaiah 54:1-3)
While the Secular World may mock such optimism and view our efforts as a futile and hopeless task, our hope is that you, our brethren, our fellow believers, see the merit and promise of what we are doing. Historically, the greatest awakening and moving of God’s Spirit have emerged from the darkest of times.
We believe we have the mind of God, that we are on the literal cusp of the fulfillment of ancient prophecy and a resultant great harvest of souls. We are building a house because we need a house to accommodate that which we see coming … It’s not just coming, it’s already begun!
The Multipurpose Worship Center we are building will serve first and primarily as the House of God, the Gospel will be preached and Christ will be worshipped. It will also serve as a House of Refuge for those in need. It will be our hub and staging center to work with our huge body of refugees (who are going nowhere for the foreseeable future); here they may come for practical aid for themselves and their families as well as for guidance and counseling as they seek to integrate into their new world. We intend to supply shelter and a field clinic as well. Our Center will also be used as a Middle Eastern training facility and Conference Center for Pastors and Workers who will come from the surrounding nations. It’s a big vision but it’s one we have confidence that will work … “This is the LORD’S doing and it’s marvelous in our sight.” (Psalms 118:23)
I want to challenge you, you who believe with us, to help us accomplish this vision of a strong and lasting Christian presence in Kurdistan and the Middle East.
TOGETHER WE CAN, TOGETHER WE WILL!
