Will you walk with them?

By Dan Etheridge

Do a sponsored walk with your mates or youth group and spend time connecting with Christians in Iraq and Syria that have fled home due to war, terror and instability.

In August 2014 thousands of Christians and minority groups from Mosul, a city in Iraq, fled their homes as Islamic State approached. They quickly packed the few things they could and left, many on foot, in the middle of the night.

Will you walk with them?

Challenge yourself, your group or your mates to a 10-mile hike. Get sponsored to raise money for Christians in Iraq and Syria that have lost nearly everything fleeing war and terror. Spend time reflecting on the painful journey thousands of Christians in Iraq and Syria have made in the past few years, leaving home and security behind.
