A Note From Our Director

Thank you for stopping by! OUR ORGANIZATION WAS FOUNDED IN 1986 AND IS IN GOOD STANDING. It has been a pleasure to serve in the United States of America, Africa, and Kurdistan. It is hard to believe that it has already been almost six years since we arrived here in Kurdistan in March 2015. It has been such an honor to serve in this particular part of the Middle East.

We have had the blessing of serving so many people including students in Kurdistan in so many numerous ways. Just this past year we taught over 100 students from all over IRAQ the English Language with many speaking in English for the very first time. With many families have returned to Sinjar to start over after being displaced, killed, and tortured by ISIS tis is so beneficial in finding work and studying again. This aid to recover in so many ways has been initiated and supervised with generous help like yours. We now, however, are in need of your help to continue our work.

It is challenging to be here because of threats of war, displaced persons, medical care that is lacking, but despite the barriers, so much is being accomplished. Last September a referendum was voted on by the people which led to an invasion from Iran and Iraq. God intervened but many more refugees are in need of our help! We have now also been invited to help with the remaining Assyrian Christians and Yexetis in their plight to be free from ongoing invasions and persecution.

Wishing you all the very best,
