“The Spirit of the Sovereign Lord is upon me, for the Lord has anointed me to bring good news to the poor. He has sent me to comfort the brokenhearted and to proclaim that captives will be released
and prisoners will be freed.” Isaiah 61:1 (NLT)
Hope for the Brokenhearted
In 2014, ISIS fighters attacked isolated Yazidi communities in Northern Iraq and violently killed thousands of men, women, and children. Not only were families separated, but thousands of young girls and women from these communities were captured as sex slaves sold to ISIS soldiers. These captives were beaten and brutally raped on a daily basis. Although some have been fortunate to escape, they will forever live with deep emotional and physical scars of their trauma.
The C&MA in Canada recognizes the only hope of healing, love, and restoration for these broken communities is the message of the Gospel and a relationship with the one true God and Saviour, Jesus Christ. Our International Workers want to bring this message of hope to these traumatized women and families who are in desperate need of it. Join us in partnering with them to reach out to the Yazidis and beyond. Help us make kingdom impact in the lives of many who are still living in pain and darkness.
