The Syrian town of Kobani is once again in news but this time for a completely separate reason. This time it is not for war or any kind of destruction due to the blooming of Christianity in this town. The war had brought about a massive change in the thoughts and beliefs of the people. The locals are changing their religion and converting themselves to Christians.

A place where being a Christian could even mean death a short time ago is now completely in a different state of belief. Four years from now the town of Kobani used to be fully under the control of ISIS as they captured all the villages and towns that were close to the city. By 2015 this city was fully under the grip of the ISIS and it was also a major site for the battle between the ISIS and the coalition army that was looking to set the city free from the ISIS.

After getting rid of the ISIS, Kobani was a major turning point in the deadly war and now it is also a major turning point in terms of religion.

Refugees are finally able to come back to their place and things are starting to get back under control. The new scene has also seen the appearance of more Christians in the area. Kobani is now home to the first evangelical church where the pastor of the region preaches to about 100 members.

The region is now witnessing more and more Christians, but one thing that is worth noting is that hundreds and thousands of Christians also flew from the region that dropped the number of Christians drastically by 4.6 percent among the total people in that area.
