IME was able to train 35 new leaders in September 2017. They were Iraqi and were not affected by the border closings later that month. They have worked, planted churches and begun to identify new leaders. New groups have begun in Mosul and in Baghdad, a city we had to flee over 10 years ago.

Work continues to expand in refugee camps. Individuals are still coming into the camps from all cultures in the Middle East. These camps are fertile ground for expressions of Jesus’ love. Many new leaders, churches and believers are being developed and discipled.

Christianity is not dead in Iraq!
