Iraq: A Forgotten Hope

Hosted by author and pastor Mark Foreman, the Nations documentary series explores places with complex narratives where the church is alive and active. In the pilot episode, “Iraq: A Forgotten Hope,” Mark travels to Iraq to see how the church is surviving amidst the persecution and genocide caused by ISIS.


I first met David Curry, president of Open Doors USA, at a LAX terminal prior to boarding a flight to the Middle East. David’s demeanor of humility seemed contrary to most who hold a position of influence and power. From the airport terminal to the very troubled environments of the Middle East, he maintained an ease and grace that drew me into his world of compassion for those living in persecution.
