When Iraq was at the height of its stability and economic stature in the '70s, Muslims revered the nation as the cosmopolitan center of the Arab world. However, after enduring seemingly constant war and conflict over the past 30 years, this emblem feels like a fading memory to its people.

With unprecedented population growth and continued economic instability, a window of opportunity has opened for the existing Jesus followers in Iraq to heal their fractured nation through the shalom of God found only in the Prince of Peace.

Basra, the capital city of Al-Basrah governorate, is an agglomeration of three small towns in southeastern Iraq. It is the principal port of Iraq and has been a stage for centuries of conflict due to its natural resources and strategic positioning alongside international borders.
