August 17, 2014: Dear Friends,
The traumas of the IS invasion continue to devastate Iraq. The terrific rampage and the slaughtering is continuing. The stories remain too awful to tell, the pictures simply too terrible to show.
All we can do is take assurance in the fact that G-d is our refuge. It is difficult saying that when all, including one’s home, has been taken from you, when some of your loved ones have been killed and when there are ten families sharing a four roomed house and everything you ever had has been taken from you. The one thing that the Christians are saying is that despite everything, Yeshua still loves them.
I have been back in England for part of the week. … On Monday I return to Israel for a short while before returning to Baghdad. Dr Sarah is back in the North of Iraq working on the relief work. Please pray that the Lord will protect us and give us the strength to keep going.
