Churches open doors for the refugees of Iraq fleeing from IS militants.
According to reports, many of the churches in Erbil opened their doors, to many Christian, Yazidis and Shia refugees fleeing the advance of IS militants. They said they feel its part of the Church’s call to provide refuge for families like these.
The Kurdsman Church opened doors for Christians, Yazidis, Shias fleeing from their homes in fear of advancing IS militants.
Pastor Majeed Mohammed who has opened his Church for refugees says, “The building is for the humanity. We wanted to show those people we don’t care if they are Christians, Yazidis, [or] Muslims. We don’t care about that. They are human beings and they have been kicked out of their home[s] by ISIS. We wanted to show them that as Christians we love them and are very glad to have them here and save them.”
“On behalf of all the people here, Pastor Majeed is really showing the love of Jesus,” a refugee says.
