"Things are so desperate, our people are disappearing. We have had people massacred, their heads chopped off. Are we seeing the end of Christianity? We are committed come what may, we will keep going to the end, but it looks as though the end could be very near."
 
On Saturday, the Vicar of the only Anglican church in Iraq warned that the end was “very near” for Christians in that country. Mosul is Iraq’s second largest city, and six weeks ago, 35,000 Christians lived there. Today, there are no Christians in Mosul.

An Orthodox Christian’s Report from Palestine on Gaza PDF Print E-mail
Sunday, 27 July 2014 09:18
More than 800 Palestinians have been killed mostly women and children. Over fifty families have been entirely wiped out where all members have died. This is a slaughter. The saddest story is the four boys ages 7-11 years old killed (July 16) on the beach while playing soccer. They were fired upon twice by air and by sea. So tragic!
 
Dear Friends of Saint George Taybeh,
The bloodshed continues in Gaza where today another UN school came under attack while hundreds of people were receiving shelter.  This is the fourth UN building to be fired upon.  A huge disaster and people were angry to be attacked in a place that was supposed to be safe. The churches in Gaza are overflowing with women and children since there are over 120,000 displaced people in this terrible violence between Israel and Hamas. A cease fire is nowhere in sight because Hamas is asking for the siege to be uplifted on Gaza.
