(BosNewsLife) – Missionaries said Thursday, May 26, that Iraq ‘s churches “continue to grow” despite reports of an exodus of Christians and bloodshed, which already killed about 620 people this month. Christian Aid Mission (CAM), which supports indigenous missionaries, said it has learned Iraqi believers “have stepped up efforts to spread the Gospel to their countrymen even though some of them are in grave danger from insurgents fighting in the name of Islam.” A BosNewsLife reporter in Baghdad was told earlier by church leaders and aid workers that ordinary Muslims are increasingly interested in Christianity and that believers in Iraq ‘s capital race through the streets to reach worship services, despite shootings and attacks. One CAM supported missionary leader, who demanded anonymity for security fears, said he believes the sudden influx and subsequent withdrawal of many foreign missionary agencies following the toppling of Iraqi leader Saddam Hussein contributed to this church growth.
