- Children’s bible study classes for kindergarten, elementary school and teens in Fuheis.
- Transportation is provided for refugees to attend classes.
- 100% of our aid relief to refugees in Jordan is to Iraqi Christians

Michael and Theresa are an elderly Christian couple originally from Mosul.
Michael and Theresa ran a restaurant in Mosul but Sunni extremists bombed it in 2008. They went to Qaraqosh but fled when Islamic State came in 2014. They managed to get to Jordan have lost everything, including their life savings and pension (the bank in Iraq will not give them their money because they are Christian). Thanks to you, we are supporting them.
