Read Open Doors Calls Attention to Iraq at Mission Network News.
"Much of the Middle East is in crisis mode: Lebanon, Syria, Egypt, Iran. Jerry Dykstra of Open Doors USA adds one more to the list. "Iraq is not getting much attention, but we need to keep the spotlight there." A series of bombings in Baghdad yesterday killed at least 70 people and wounded far more. Rising sectarian violence between Sunni and Shi'ite Muslims is to blame. Dysktra says Christians are caught between a rock and a hard place. "They're not only victims of the random violence, but they're also specifically targeted by Muslim extremists." There are many ways you can help through Open Doors. Get connected at our website. "Open Doors has been very active in Iraq for many years." Pray for encouragement and healing for Christians in Iraq. Pray "that they get the healing they need, and I'm talking about healing not only physically, but also emotionally and spiritually.""
