World Compassion believes that compassion evangelism is a key to unlocking the door of people’s hearts. Anytime you can help someone at their most urgent time of need, their heart is often more open to the gospel. We provide monthly distributions of food for Syrian refugees in Northern Iraq, distributed through local Iraqi Christian churches.
With each food distribution, World Compassion aims to provide Christian literature or a spoken message of hope found in Jesus Christ. This is done through preaching (depending on the social climate at the time) and offering our The Story of Jesus booklet and/or a Bible in their own language.
We encourage and assist local pastors in their follow-up and discipleship model to ensure those coming to Christ are integrated into a local body of believers and taught the core principles of the Christian faith.
Below, you’ll find two ways your church can make a difference in the Syrian refugee crisis.
