"Christianity began to become a main religion in the central part of Kurdish regions from the fifth century onwards. Mar Saba succeeded in converting some sun-worshipping Kurds to Christianity in the fifth century..
In recent years many Kurds from Muslim background have converted to Christianity. After the First Gulf War in 1991, Christian agencies offered help to Kurdish refugees, who were amazed that the assistance came from Christians..
In Turkey, Christianity has attracted a number of converts both among Kurds and Turks in the past decade. In Iraqi Kurdistan, several evangelical fellowships have been formed. While in some cases they have faced intolerance by extremist Muslims, their activities are largely tolerated by the Regional Government of Kurdistan (KRG) out of a desire to remain democratic. Since 2001, Servant Group International has established three English-language Christian schools titled Classical School of the Medes in Iraqi Kurdistan. By 2005three campuses in Sulaimaniya, Irbil and Dohuk with a total enrolment of 700 students, were operational. These schools are viewed, by some, as a vehicle to help create fertile ground for conversion in the hearts of students. Kurdistan Regional Government has recently awarded legal status and an official permit to theBible Society to open a branch in the region."
Let's continue to pray...
