Description

On Freedom Sunday, churches all around the world come together as a united, hope-filled, justice-driven community seeking to end modern slavery. We start with prayer, lament, learning, dialogue, and worship to inform and catalyze our response to this global tragedy.

Because Freedom Sunday is more than a day. It’s more than a worship service. Freedom Sunday is a movement of hope.

This year, churches have a powerful opportunity to help bring hope to refugees in Northern Iraq. As many as 7,000 women from the Yazidi minority community were kidnapped, enslaved, and brutally abused by ISIS fighters who used rape as a weapon during the Iraq War. Today, there are an estimated 350,000 Yazidis living in persistent trauma and poverty in internal displacement camps in northern Iraq, vulnerable and uncertain about their future.

Your church can help bring light into this darkness. Your prayer, support, and offerings will help Yazidi refugees in Northern Iraq experience holistic freedom: physically, emotionally, mentally, and spiritually.

The Set Free Movement, International Child Care Ministries, and SEED Livelihood are teaming up with Impact Middle East to build upon their existing efforts to share the grace and truth of Jesus in Northern Iraq. Together, we will help build the resiliency of refugees in these ways:

> Holistic healing: the Set Free Movement will be partnering with mental health practitioners to care for and empower survivors of human trafficking.

> Educational empowerment: ICCM will give children living in refugee camps access to education so they can grow into their full potential.

>Economic development: SEED will help refugees create long-term sustainable business ventures so they can be a blessing to their communities and also achieve economic independence.

The generosity of your church on Freedom Sunday will help build a financial foundation to launch these vital new ministries. Please join us by worshipping, praying, and giving in the direction of freedom. Together, we can help create new futures for survivors and refugees in Northern Iraq.
