Some Really GOOD News out of Iraq

There are things going on in Iraq that the Mainstream Media isn’t telling you. “What, you say? I thought the MSM was always after a “story”? True – to a degree – if the story makes the USA, Bush, or our Armed Forces look bad. But you won’t see this headline in MSM print or television.
The news is this. Record numbers of Muslims are getting saved in Iraq. Iraquis are experiencing religious freedom because of our Military presence, and thousands are coming to the Lord for their salvation.
There is an excellent article by Michael Ireland, Chief Correspondent of the Christian ASSIST News Service that tells not only about a key Saddam military leader (Retired General Georges Sada) who received Christ, but also of the hundreds and even thousands that have come out of the false Islam religion and embraced Christ as their Savior. A few highlights from the article:

The Kurds in the north of Iraq, for example, are especially receptive to the gospel message and are converting ‘by the hundreds’

One evangelical church recently started in Kurdistan now has more than 800 people worshipping there every week, most of whom are new converts from Islam…”

“…some 5,000 Iraqis have publicly identified themselves as new followers of Christ since Iraq was liberated…”

And maybe most touching of all is this…

Sada…thanks…the American people for liberating his country and said all peace-loving people should ‘kneel down and thank the [American] mothers and fathers who have sacrificed their sons and daughters for the sake of freedom in Iraq.’

God is so good.

The Lord is not slack concerning his promise, as some men count slackness; but is longsuffering to us-ward, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance.” II Peter 3:9.
