Zaki an Iraqi Christian who fled Iraq because of ISIS, now lives with his wife and two children in a room crowded with at least three other refugee families in Jordan. Their suitcases are piled along the entrance, and their laundry hangs from the windows.
Zaki’s children, Athena and toddler Ethan, may never see Iraq again — a price their father says he is willing to pay to keep his faith.
Zaki says, “Jesus Christ told people, ‘leave everything and follow me,’ “Zaki said, cradling his 9-month-old daughter, Athena.”So we did.” “We had to leave everything and go … to be Christian, to stay in my religion,” he added.
