This dedicated portal is reserved for our ministry partners who financially support our work throughout the Middle East. Using the words of William Carey, pioneer to India, we're so grateful for those of you who "hold the rope so others can descend into the mine." Below is an update of our four pillar initiatives: relief, training, film, and publishing. We'll update this page a few times throughout the year, and send you an email when new information has been added. Here, you'll have access to private reports, video dispatches, and photo galleries to stay informed as to what we're doing with the funds you're sacrificially sowing into this ministry.
We meet our operational needs through both monthly support and bi-annual fundraising. This summer, we are raising $250,000USD to supplement our monthly income to achieve a number of initiatives outlined below; much of that is needed to expand our regional relief work throughout Iraqi Kurdistan. You can contribute here.
Thank you for your prayers, friendship, and sacrificial giving as we've labored to exalt Jesus in the Muslim world.

Since launching FAI Relief last year, we've served thousands of refugees and IDPs through the course of the Mosul campaign. We are working to build a chain of medical teams throughout Iraqi Kurdistan, from the Syrian border in the west to the Iranian border in the east. This is a historically unprecedented medical presence and no small undertaking. As doors open into Syria, FAI Relief is expanding operations to serve the victims of the 'greatest humanitarian crisis' in our generation and proclaim the precious Name of the King we adore.
Our first Emmaus School of Ministry is underway; our dozen students just completed their lecture phase and are now rotating through our field posts for their immersion phase. We have been so blessed by the calibre of the young adults the Lord brought to us through this program; some will join us in full-time work after their May 2017 graduation, while for others this school will shape their missiology and worldview as the Lord leads them in other directions.
Last year, we released our fourth feature film into the wild for free stream and download. It is our conviction to make our films available for free forever; here's why and how we can give our films away for free. It is because of your support tens of thousands have streamed, downloaded, or attended a screening event of one of our films. It will encourage you to know that with just one exception, every single Emmaus School applicant submitted an application because they saw one of our films and the Lord stirred their heart to reach the unreached and engage the unengaged with the Gospel of the Kingdom.
Thank you for your support as we labor to exalt the worth of Jesus Christ among the unreached and unengaged at the end of the age.
