So many of the Christians in the Epicenter have been caught up in the swift movement of ISIS (Islamic State in Iraq and Syria), which raced from Syria into north central Iraq earlier this summer. One couple that was actively involved in a church found themselves in this dangerous situation. As rumors swirled that ISIS was preparing to invade their town, the couple began to pray, trusting that God would guide them to safety and cover them with His protection, should they need to leave their home quickly.
Please join The Joshua Fund in praying for the people of Syria and Iraq, as well as the U.S. and allied forces to have success in defeating the terrorists that are oppressing the people of these nations.
