This is a group of about 600 000 people with 73 periods in history where they experienced massacres and/or genocide. Over the last 5 years small numbers of Yazidi became Christians. This happened especially when Christians did not only share the gospel with them, but also attended to their personal needs.
Approximately 6000 Yazidis were killed since 2014 and 5000 were women and children. Many of the women are constantly raped, abused, subjected to severe slavery and very often simply killed when their captors (extremist Muslim groups) feel that they are not useful anymore.
- Pray for the salvation of these people.
- Pray about their suffering.
- Pray for Christian and other humanitarian ministries to help these people.
