A new window of opportunity in Mosul

Dear Friend,

After more than three years under ISIS control, the city of Mosul has been liberated by U.S.-backed Iraqi forces. The last remaining extremists were driven out this past week, and one of our Christ-centered partners working on the front lines in Iraq shared just how important this victory is:
The gravity of this liberation should not be overlooked. Mosul was an important Islamic State stronghold. ISIS featured the city in propaganda videos, displaying it as an example of utopian governance with a bustling economy. (emphasis theirs)

Before ISIS took control of Mosul in June 2014, it was home to approximately 2.4 million Iraqis. Today, in the aftermath of the Islamic State, the city is a mass of rubble and desolation. But our partner ministry reports:

Mosul was the last main urban center in [the brutal terror group's] control. Now, it is liberated! Maintaining this liberation will not be easy. … As believers, we must continue to pray for those within this group. They are living in such opposition to the truth and God’s ways. They are not outside of God’s reach, though, so we pray that they would be saved and changed by the gospel and live for God’s glory alone. We must pray for believers in the region and throughout the world. (emphasis theirs)


+ + The MIRACLE HARVEST Continues!

Over the past few months, I’ve been sharing with you how thousands and thousands of Muslims in the Middle East are coming to Christ. Through refugee camps and other outreach efforts supported by Liberty Relief International (LRI), men, women, and children who have never heard the Gospel before are embracing faith in Jesus! Now, a new window of opportunity has opened in Mosul.

With the help of Christ-centered partners in the region, we have been ministering to the physical and spiritual needs of persecuted Christians, new believers from Muslim backgrounds, and spiritual seekers. LRI friends like you, <#first_name#>, have sponsored thousands of Bibles to feed these brothers and sisters the Word of God. But our work is far from over! Go here to help now.

In the shadow of ISIS evil in Iraq and a murderous civil war in Syria, God is moving. He is using evil for good (Gen. 50:20) and drawing tens of thousands of Muslims to Himself (John 12:32). The Lord also is comforting the persecuted and revealing His grace, power, and love through amazing testimonies of faith. Today, the church is being given an amazing opportunity to participate in this MIRACLE HARVEST of souls in the Middle East.

LRI is supporting this incredible move of the Holy Spirit by working with a Christ-centered partner in the region to help provide Bibles for new believers, persecuted Christians, and spiritual speakers. Our ministry partner can deliver copies of God’s Word to brothers and sisters in Muslim-majority nations for just $5 each!

In July, LRI wants to raise $20,000 over and above our normal operating expenses to support the MIRACLE HARVEST in the Middle East. But based on our current projections, we’re not even halfway to that goal!

P.S. Bibles are so readily available to believers in America that delivering a copy of God’s Word to an ISIS refugee or a victim of civil war might not seem like a big deal. But reports indicate that 75 percent of Muslim converts return to Islam if they don’t receive active discipleship within six to 12 months after accepting Christ. Please help carry Bibles to persecuted Christians, new believers, and spiritual seekers in the Middle East with your gift today!
