Christians are only six percent of the population and most Christian children are in the public schools where the study of Islam is mandatory. Only at their churches can Christian children talk and act like Christians. The Camp for Christian children we support was founded by a dear friend of mine more than 30 years ago.
The Christians of Qaraqosh and other towns simply call us “the diaper ministry.” We distribute diapers in six sizes from newborn to toddler. We fill a void that no other ministry is addressing. At the same time, our partner ministry reinforces the Gospel of hope through our Lord.
Violent Sunni Muslim terrorist groups who destroy our values and kill Christians worldwide are the true enemies of freedom and democracy and of our way of life. The Deep State is distracting Americans from the real danger with Russia hysteria. When Vladimir Putin is dead and buried Sunni Muslim terrorists will still be killing Americans.
“In April, Fulani herdsmen attacked a group of Christians during Sunday mass, killing two priests and seventeen parishioners. The same attackers then razed fifty homes belonging to Christians. In fact, earlier in the year, on New Year’s Day, 72 people died at the hands of a Fulani attack.” Danger grows for Christians in Nigeria, a nation that at one time was nearly 100% Christian.

In April of this year, when I visited the Nigerian orphanage that the Religious Freedom Coalition supports, the available water was marginal. There was only one running tap for over 200 children and the squatting toilets did not flush.
Will we be able to meet all requests for the Christmas program? In Lebanon our ministry partner wants to increase the program to 2,000 children and to furnish two blankets to each family. In Iraq the program costs will increase because the location of the children is spread out more. Sadly, regardless of how many families we reach, many thousands more will spend Christmas in a tent in a farmer’s field.
The reality of attacks on Christianity can still be seen in Iraq. At a church the Cross on Sunday School doors has been desecrated and the writing of the Islamic State still says, “The Cross must be broken” The church as looted just as were Christian homes and businesses.
