Above is a picture of Cevan and I. Forty days ago this high school student made the treacherous journey out of ISIS controlled areas and into Jordan.
In the back of a Jordanian church, live 85 Iraqis Christians. Today, I ventured to Marjet Al- Haman, Jordan, to hear from those who fled ISIS. Although I have yet to hear much of their ordeal I can speak on their greatest needs. Overwhelming the Iraqis from Mosul said their greatest needs are (1) to tell the world their story and (2) to gain political asylum in another country. They are fearful to return to Iraq and do not feel comfortable in Jordan.
Despite their extremely challenging circumstances, the Iraqis I met remain strong and hopeful. It is quite motivating to be amongst such resilient people.
