Dear Beloved in Yeshua, Their plight is our own plight. Their fate is our own fate. Please take this moment to reflect and pray for our brothers' and sisters in Mosul, Iraq, all ISIS controlled areas, Sudan and for all of Israel at this time. These troubling news are not too far from our shores and borders. We thank God for the faith of Sudanese Christian woman, Merriam Ibrahim who won't deny the name of Yeshua even in the face of Sudan's Islamic caliphate state. May her faith and trial serves as wake up call for the Church of Jesus Christ in the 21st century today. " The Christian Era in the Middle East is Over" writes Giulio Meotti: "Ramallah was 90% Christian before the 1948 War of Independence and Bethlehem was 80% Christian. Today Ramallah is a large Islamic city and Bethlehem's Christians are near extinction.
