Iraqi society is becoming more Islamic. Despite cities being liberated from the Islamic State, thousands of fighters remain in Iraq. Whilst it has been safe for some Christians to return home, many struggle to stay due to a lack of jobs. Traditional and Evangelical churches have been divided for many years, but many church leaders say that the Islamic State helped unify the Church.

Pray: For jobs for Iraqi Christians so that they can remain in Iraq and be the light of Jesus.
