"Jesus Loves Iraq" Update

Last month, we launched a week-long "Jesus Love Iraq" awareness and fundraising campaign. As we became more and more aware about the dire situation involving ISIS, we were moved to act in whatever way we could. Through this campaign, we set the goal of $5,000 to benefit Preemptive Love Coalition, a ministry whose mission is to provide life saving heart surgeries to Iraqi children. We at Jesus Said Love believe in partnership, and we're glad to partner with our friends who are reaching the marginalized in Iraq. Praise God, we were able to raise our entire goal of $5k! Below is a letter from Preemptive Love Coalition expressing gratitude and updates.

Dear friends,

Thank you, your love is so evident here in Iraq! By donating, you have helped save lives, providing for displaced, persecuted Iraqi families who recently fled ISIS. And you are serving in places few others will.

As NGOs flood the Kurdistan region, we are taking your money to the least­reached, most dangerous cities of Baghdad and Kirkuk, and it’s all because of this love­mandate of Jesus.

Your money is helping Christian men like Isaac as he attempts to support displaced Christian families in Baghdad.

Your kindness is now helping Yezidi children like these. After fleeing ISIS, they are now receiving food, shelter, clothes, and school supplies.

And that’s just the beginning of what you’re accomplishing here! Subscribe to our blog to follow along and see the impact you are having in Iraq.

For love,

Matthew Willingham
