Jeremy Courtney of the organization Preemptive Love Coalition posted a powerful video on Facebook this weekend, explaining how a Muslim man in Iraq built a cross for his Christian neighbors after their church was destroyed by ISIS.
The city of Mosul is being liberated from ISIS, who destroyed churches and persecuted the population while in control of the area. But, as Jeremy Courtney explains, these kinds of stories—of Muslims coming alongside of Christians—aren’t the kinds we’re used to hearing about, even though they happen all of the time in Iraq.
Marwan is a Muslim. But when Marwan came into this church, he couldn’t accept the fact that these other guys who claimed to be Muslims were rampaging through this place, destroying the signs and icons of his Christian friends, his Christian compatriots, his Christian neighbors. And so, our Muslim friend Marwan helps fashion this cross together.
The Preemptive Love Coalition works in Iraq to deliver life-saving aid and provide medical services to communities in need.
