    Thousands of Muslims In Northern Iraq Converting to Christianity

    More and more Kurdish Muslims living in Iraq are turning to Christ after witnessing the brutality of extremist groups like ISIS, who carry out horrific acts in the name of Allah, Christian aid workers have revealed.

    A ministry leader in the Kurdish Region of Iraq told the Christian Aid Mission that his organization can barely keep up with the desire of refugees to learn about Christ and the Bible, which has grown increasingly strong since ISIS overtook many parts of the region.

    "They're just sick of Islam," he said. "People are very hungry to know about Christ, especially when they hear about miracles, healing, mercy and love."

    He added, "As terrifying and horrifying as ISIS is, they did us a great favor 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."

    Numbers released by the UN in January estimated the Kurdish Region of Iraq is hosting 900,000 refugees, around 233,000 from Syria and the rest from elsewhere in Iraq. As well as Kurds, who have fled northern Syria, the region has also accepted thousands of Arabs feeling the cities of Anbar province, which the terrorist group captured in 2014.

    The ministry director revealed that his organization provides aid to displaced people in tents and whatever dilapidated or unfinished buildings they can find for shelter, with needs for blankets, heaters, food and diapers still being high.

    After showing refugees the love of Christ by meeting their needs, aid workers later bring Bibles, he said.

    "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."

    The leader said there has a been a great "awakening" among Muslims in northern Iraq, citing many conversion accounts he has personally witnessed or heard secondhand from local churches.

    I know one pastor who is trying to bring some refugees over to his city. This is one reason I'm heavily supportive of bringing refugees over in mass. There is a possibility of mass conversions, and that's worth any risk any day.

    That's KURDS that converted, not the Arabs Obama wants to bring in. Out of 10 Arab Moslems in I would expect one Islamic Radical child. I hate Trump, but he's right about this.

    What makes Arabs different from Kurds that the Holy Spirit cannot reach them?

    A lot of this is happening in North Africa, as well, specifically Algeria, Morocco, Tunisia and Libya.

    Do you really want to talk about race here and now?
    Somebody, sometime, is going to goad me into laying it all out, but I don't think that's what you want.
