Christians of Iraq—Your Family in Baghdad

Once there were more than a million worshipers of Jesus in Iraq. How long ago? Oh, about ten years or so. Today they're almost gone.

Tens, if not hundreds, of thousands of your Christian brothers and sisters have lost their lives in the conflict. The small remnant that remains is desperately poor and under constant threat.
