Iraq (Mission Network News) We’ve kept you updated on the situation in Fallujah, Iraq, the town under ISIS control that was recently reclaimed by Iraqi troops. Thousands of people from Fallujah had fled to a nearby refugee town dubbed the City of Refuge.

Frontiers USA tells us in the last 18 months, through the work of indigenous missionaries, over 140 of those people in the City of Refuge have accepted Jesus Christ as their Savior.

As Iraqi forces now work to secure Fallujah and resume public sanitation, Frontiers’ President Bob Blincoe says some of these new Christians want to go back to to their homes and share the hope they’ve found through Christ for the first time in Fallujah!
