A member of our church and several others with the International Mission Board (IMB) have been serving as translators in Iraq on a rotating basis for some time now. With the uptick in violence, they are currently trying to evacuate, but between the military curfew and the sporadic running gun battles (one of which was on their street on Saturday) they have not been able to get out. They don't have a car, but they've contacted US military forces and are hoping for an escort early this week.

I really can't give any specifics, but please keep our missionaries in your prayers.

His will be done.

[COLOR=green]Thank you everybody. I didn't include much information in the last posting because the IMB is worried about what information gets out over the Web. I can now tell you that Donna Beth Clark and those with her did get in contact with US forces and managed to escape to Jordan. They are due to return to the US this weekend.[/COLOR=green]

If there is no easy way out of Iraq, one has to “bite the built” and just get the hell out, (as quickly, and as safely as possible). But that’s not about to happen, as long as the Bush Crime Family is still making money, at the cost of thousands of lives, and our country!
Anyway, I do hope the military escorts the missionaries out of Iraq, (ASAP) along with them selves.

Glad to see that they are ok. Hope they have a safe journey to their next stop. China is having a fun time slaughtering Christians left and right too.

Will definitely keep these folks in prayer. There are many dangerous spots for those who would spread the Gospel. I admire their willingness to press on in spite of the dangers. And if they have to leave, we trust that "His Word will not return unto Him void."

Glad to hear they are out of the direct line of fire. Will continue to pray for a safe trip home.

I think it is arrogant of christians to think that god is on their side. How do you now he isnt on the iraqis side. After all it was our countries that invaded them. Not the other way around.

God doesn't choose sides, we do. Our only job while we're here is to be loved. Some folks don't know what that means, and that's why they went to Iraq. It's not about some conquest of conversion, it's about loving people because they're worth it.

I am glad they got out and wish them a safe trip home. Promoting Christianity in some areas of the world is just too dangerous.

I wonder if it's not possible to say that promoting Christianity in some parts of the world, especially unbidden, might be dangerous because it's not really appropriate? I know that's not going to be a welcome thought in some quarters.

In any case, I too am very glad that they are unharmed, and still strong and ready to do the good work of their lives where it finds welcome and takes root.

Very true, not being welcome is what makes it dangerous. An acquaintance had a son who became a missionary. He and his wife devised a plan to smuggle Bibles into China. The only thing that kept them from a lengthly stay in a Chinese prison was, they were caught before they entered China. If you are not welcome, do not go. Our Govt. would do well to learn that.
