Iraq Waits for You

In the 1990’s Bob Blincoe moved his young family to northern Iraq to reach the Muslim Kurds who hadn’t yet heard the gospel. His family along with a few other single men were the first messengers of Jesus to take the gospel there. What God has done since among the Kurds is extraordinary. Yet so much more of Iraq is still waiting! Bob serves as President Emeritus of Frontiers USA ; a movement, with love and respect, inviting all Muslim peoples to follow Jesus. Bob shares how John 3:16 first started beating in his chest at the University of Oregon.

Then, the gospel has taken root in northern Iraq, yet the rest of the country languishes without the message of life. Next, consider taking a short trip with Bob to Bagdad to pray on site for those still waiting to hear the good news and to prepare the way for messengers of Jesus to come. Then, “Bob, I’d be willing to go but you don’t know the skeletons in my closet, I’m just not qualified!” Finally, the cost of going to the Muslim world and the staggering promises of God that help us face the cost. If this challenges you, please share!

Perry LaHaie

Perry LaHaie's passion is to know Jesus and make Him known. “I’m all in with Jesus but not all put together. I need Jesus right now as much as I did when I first started following Him!” Perry says. In addition to co-hosting Perry and Shawna Mornings, Perry is a singer, songwriter, recording artist, and advocate for those who haven’t yet heard the gospel, especially those in the Muslim world. Born and raised in northern Michigan, he earned a bachelor’s degree in Communications and a graduate degree in Cross- cultural Communications. Perry also serves with Frontiers, a worldwide ministry to Muslims. Perry and his bride, Teresa, call Holland, Michigan home. They have two adult children, Kali and Taylor, and Taylor’s bride, Bri.


Shawna Beyer

Shawna Beyer has a way of telling stories that create personal connection— to her, to one another, and to God. She has been a homeschool mom, church planter, project lead for a consulting company, and church staff member. Though she’s been involved in ministry with her husband (Dan) in Iowa, Arizona, and now Michigan, she was born and raised in Southern California and as they say, “You can take the girl out of California . . .” She is mom to four grown kids (Bryn, Drayson, Eden, and Haven) who no longer need her but humor her anyway. Shawna is passionate about the rhythms we weave into the fabric of our lives to fall more in love with God each day. Healthy foods are her go-to, but she will abandon that whole track in a heartbeat for a homemade cinnamon roll like Grandma used to make.
