Iraq: A Forgotten Hope
Nations is a documentary film series hosted by author and pastor Mark Foreman. In the pilot episode, 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.”
Nations journalists travel to the ends of the earth to tell stories of God’s presence in places of pain and persecution. These original features are published online and in our annual print magazine, Nations Journal.
Our documentary film series and video dispatches explore the church’s response to crisis in places with complex narratives.
Our global contributor network brings stories of hope to life. The Nations family is made up of writers, designers, photographers, filmmakers, and readers dedicated to bearing witness to the Gospel’s subversive hope.
