Christmas Events Begin in Middle East

The Christmas program for 2018 will serve nearly 10,000 children. There were four Christmas events for children the first week of December. Of those four, two were held by brand new churches founded by Syrian refugees. Christmas programs are directed differently in Lebanon because of the sheer number of events and the distances between them.

The Chairman’s Report For November 21, 2018

Christmas for Refugees almost, but not fully funded for 2018 / In Syria, Christmas events for children in four locations including Jaramana! / Diapers for Refugees to purchase another 500,000 diapers in December / Other programs: Fuel for Camp Odrana paid for until December / Over $300,000 already paid out for Christmas for Refugees programs

A small group of children make star ornaments as a project during a Christmas for Refugees event at a Nazarene Church in Lebanon. Christmas, 2017 YES! We Will Have a Christmas Program in Syria This Year

This year, about 1,000 children will have a full Christmas program in Syria including a hot meal and gifts. The children are not officially refugees but are what is referred to as “displaced persons,” a person who is still in their native country but has been forced out of their home by war.

$100,000 sent to Middle East for Christmas programs!

Christmas in the Middle East! Over $100,00 wired to Lebanon, Jordan and Iraq in October and $200,000 more in November to provide Christmas events for Christian children. A special program doubles all gifts to the Christmas for Refugees program made in November. More children can be provided a Christmas!

Amazon Supports Stoning Women To Death

Jeff Bezos, the world’s richest man, funnels money to this radical Islamist group that wants to establish Sharia law in the UK through his Amazon Smile program. At the same time he blocks funds to a Christian organization aiding Christian refugees

The Chairman’s Report for October 26, 2018

In this issue of the newsletter / Christmas for Refugees “matching gift challenge” underway / Christmas for Refugees will set up program for children in the “West Bank” / Diapers for Refugees program totally funded for 2018 * 2 million diapers! / HR-390 is still stalled in the Senate . . . Senator Rand Paul is trying to help!

Matching gift program for Christmas established!

If we can raise the $77,031 needed to use the full matching gift fund, we’ll have raised $154,062 toward fully funding the 2018 Christmas for Refugees program.  By completing the matching challenge, we will be close to reaching our goal of helping almost twice as many  children

Providing Diesel to Odrana camp in Dohuk

The Assyrian Aid Society asked us to supply the diesel fuel for the generators for the rest of the year. We agreed to send $1,500 per month through December, when we hope Christians will be able to return.

Two million diapers this year

Our Diapers for Refugees program will distribute 500,000 diapers during September, October and November thanks to the generous gifts of the supporters of the Religious Freedom Coalition.  The mothers of each of those children also receive feminine sanitary pads for themselves.

Remembering 911

William J. Murray, the chairman of the Religious Freedom Coalition recounts the events of the 9-11 jihad attack against the United States as he lived them. Murray was on the 14th Street bridge near the Pentagon when American Airlines 77 slammed into it. He had been on the phone with a Special Assistant to President Bush discussing the attacks in New York at the time.

HR-390 can’t pass the Senate and get help to persecuted Christians

The Iraq and Syria Genocide Emergency Relief and Accountability Act of 2017 (HR-390) passed out of the House a year ago on a near unanimous vote.  Then, it sat in the Senate for many months until it was totally re-written by Senator Corker (R-TN).  

Christmas for Refugees in Syria!

Nearly 900,000 Syrians are expected to return to Syria in the next few months. The Christians are moving back to destroyed and looted homes and churches, just as they have in Iraq’s Nineveh Plain. 1,000 displaced Syrian Christians will have a real Christmas this year if we can raise the needed funds.  

Diapers for Refugees: One million more diapers this year!

We are currently buying 500,000 diapers at a time which greatly reduces the cost.  Each diaper shipment supplies diapers for about 2,000 infants and toddlers over a three-month period.

New playground for kids’ summer camp in Jordan

Christians are only six percent of the population and most Christian children are in the public schools where the study of Islam is mandatory. Only at their churches can Christian children talk and act like Christians. The Camp for Christian children we support was founded by a dear friend of mine more than 30 years ago.

Displaced Iraqi Christian women receive diapers for their infants and toddlers, supplied by the Diapers for Refugees program The expanded diaper program in Iraq

The Christians of Qaraqosh and other towns simply call us “the diaper ministry.” We distribute diapers in six sizes from newborn to toddler. We fill a void that no other ministry is addressing. At the same time, our partner ministry reinforces the Gospel of hope through our Lord.

William Murray speaking at the site of the drafting of the Virginia Act Establishing Religious Freedom in 1777. RUSSIA and the SUNNI MUSLIM THREAT

Violent Sunni Muslim terrorist groups who destroy our values and kill Christians worldwide are the true enemies of freedom and democracy and of our way of life.  The Deep State is distracting Americans from the real danger with Russia hysteria. When Vladimir Putin is dead and buried Sunni Muslim terrorists will still be killing Americans.

New Genocide In Nigeria

“In April, Fulani herdsmen attacked a group of Christians during Sunday mass, killing two priests and seventeen parishioners.  The same attackers then razed fifty homes belonging to Christians.  In fact, earlier in the year, on New Year’s Day, 72 people died at the hands of a Fulani attack.” Danger grows for Christians in Nigeria, a nation that at one time was nearly 100% Christian.

These are the new water tanks that will sit on top of the new water towers which have not yet been delivered. This is not a small project. Construction of new water system underway

In April of this year, when I visited the Nigerian orphanage that the Religious Freedom Coalition supports, the available water was marginal.  There was only one running tap for over 200 children and the squatting toilets did not flush.

Christmas for Refugees

Will we be able to meet all requests for the Christmas program? In Lebanon our ministry partner wants to increase the program to 2,000 children and to furnish two blankets to each family. In Iraq the program costs will increase because the location of the children is spread out more. Sadly, regardless of how many families we reach, many thousands more will spend Christmas in a tent in a farmer’s field.

Returned from the Middle East

The reality of attacks on Christianity can still be seen in Iraq. At a church the Cross on Sunday School doors has been desecrated and the writing of the Islamic State still says, “The Cross must be broken” The church as looted just as were Christian homes and businesses.
