Hundreds of Muslims are accepting Christianity, Christian aid workers serving among the Kurdish Muslim refugees reveal.

In line with details, Christian Aid Mission has aired verified reports of mass conversions, which as per the local Christian aid workers who claim these conversions are caused due to barbarism being carried out by Islamic State militias who kill in the name of Allah.

Christian Aid Mission even asserts that one of the Christian aid workers serving in the refugee camps in northern Iraq stated that his organization can “barely keep up with the desire of refugees to learn about Christ and the Bible.” This desire has been nurtured as a result of inhumane acts committed by ISIS.

“They’re just sick of Islam. People are very hungry to know about Christ, especially when they hear about miracles, healing, mercy and love. As terrifying and horrifying as ISIS is, they did us a great favour because they came and have shown them all the killing, saying that it’s all in the Koran verses. So now we don’t have to say much, we just say the truth.”

In line with official statistics released by the United Nations in January, earlier this year, there are about 900,000 refugees taking refuge in Kurdish area of Northern Iraq. This colossal figure of refugees include around 233,000 from Syria, while the rest of them have come from somewhere else in Iraq.

Apart from refugees from all across Iraq and Syria, are Kurds from northern Syria who had been displaced by ISIS terrorists. Moreover, thousands of Arabs, who have fled from the cities of Anbar province which has, fell into the hands of terrorists in 2014.

The Christian aid worker told that after showing refugees the love of Christ by meeting their basic needs, they bring Bibles, to the refugees. “We just help because we love them, and maybe the next time we visit we tell them about Jesus and give them Bibles,” he said.

“We believe in the power of the Word of God. We don’t have many preachers. We don’t have many missionaries, but we have the Word of God that we’re able to print, purchase and deliver to the people and their children.”
