AsiaLink partners are involved in various ministries including leadership training through theological books in Arabic, evangelism and church-planting efforts. Typical cost: £25

The translation of the New Testament in Bahdini, one of the main Kurdish languages, has been finished and is now in the process of testing. We are delighted to be able to help local workers finish off this invaluable project. Typical cost: £50

PRAY FOR

The painstaking process of the translation of the New Testament into the Kurdish language. Pray that there will be no set backs. Pray that the Lord will give the peace of Christ to the believers who face hatred and persecution on a daily basis. Pray for the leaders of the Iraqi government.

I am writing to you from America and want to help my people in Iraq and spread peace to the nation through the name of our Lord Jesus Christ. My people are dying everyday for just being Christian. They are the Assyrians/Chaldeans/Syriacs of Iraq. Our church the Church of the East has had a rich history and has sought out and spread the word of Christ to most of the eastern Asia but as Christ foretold they would be persecuted for belief in him. God bless those who have died for Jesus Christ. Amen.

I really feel like there is a widow out there that I need to connect with and she is in Iraq... Or maybe I'm crazy. Let me know if you might be able to help me find her. I would love to have her name so I can pray for her and her children each day. Thank you, I have no clue how or what I can do to help her yet but first I need to find her. Again, I feel crazy writing this but I can't get over the feeling. God bless all of you and what you are doing.

When I was deployed to Iraq as a Chaplain Assistant, part of my job was the dismantling and closure of Chapels. As part of that, I brought back several Bibles, New Testaments and Gospel of John books. I'm not certain if there's a particular dialect you are looking for but I assure you the books I've referenced above are in A Kurdish language. They are currently collecting dust in my garage. I've saved them in the hopes I could send or bring them back for distribution among those able to read them. My friend and I have independently come to the idea of going back to Iraq as missionaries but are not certain where, when or how best to go about this. Any advise would be greatly appreciated

Josh, I am currently planning to accompany a group to Kurdistan within the next two months. I would love to deliver the Bibles on your behalf. Is there any way I can contact you, without giving out your phone number for all to see? And Ricky, I would love to be part of something of that magnitude. It will be a huge, up hill battle, however.

Hello, please pray for me, my Christian brothers and sisters. God has put it on my heart to go and preach His Gospel in Baghdad. I know it's very dangerous there, but God is always with us and honors our obedience. I'm so scared, and don't know how to go about to a mission there. I'm not graduated from high school yet, and I am not yet certain if God wants me to wait. If you hear of any mission trips going to Baghdad in the future, please let me know. I desperately want to have Love and Passion for my Savior and Heavenly Father again, this trial is just wearing me down. I know God is only using it to strengthen me though, He is Faithful and Good!
