A SPECIAL APPEAL TO THE BODY OF CHRIST
In recent weeks we have been horrified by reports of savage oppression of Christians in Iraq and Syria. Our brothers and sisters in Christ have been given the option to convert to Islam, leave their home, or die. A number of aid organizations have stepped into this humanitarian crisis to assist those who have been displaced. In the midst of these tragic circumstances there is also an opportunity to share the gospel of Jesus Christ with some who have yet to receive Him.
There are many opportunities for Christians to contribute to the relief efforts. The Missions Committee at BridgePoint has identified four as worthy of your consideration. The Committee itself has chosen to make a contribution to the first of these. We invite the BridgePoint community to join us in supporting these efforts to aid persecuted Christians and others.
