BJ Burns – full time missionary with ACI in Kurdistan Iraq

ACI works in the Kurdistan region of northern Iraq. ACI partners with four other NGOs to execute many projects in the region. One program provides nutrition supplementation to families in villages around the larger city of Erbil. They purchase and distribute these nutrition kits to needy families and through that are able to initiate stronger relationships with them. This leads to opportunities to share the Good News with them. The same is true for medical support initiatives that we carry out. We also provide material and financial support for a home school for Syrian Kurdish refugee children where they receive basic education as well as supplemental education in Biblical studies. Currently we’re helping open a school actually in Syria! Partnership with a larger NGO on The Prayer Bears project has enabled around 10 families to meet basic needs that they otherwise wouldn’t have been able to. While it was intended as “supplemental income” there is often no primary income source available to refugee families, as many of them are not allowed to work in Iraqi Kurdistan. In one family it actually paid for the college education of one of their daughters. In one of the villages, all of the families involved in the project have subsequently come to Christ through other ministry outreach programs, no doubt due to prayer for them. It has been a powerful blessing to them and opportunity to deepen developing relationships.http://2017aci.org
