In neighboring Iraq, as the Armenian Evangelical Church of Baghdad was recently celebrating the Birth of the Lord, a series of explosions took place. As chaos reigned outside, inside the Pastor and his congregation decided to stay and finish the service to the end. They thanked the Lord for protection and pray for comfort of the Holy Spirit for the families who have lost loved ones in the war which continues to worsen. Terror, bomb explosions, joblessness and economic downfall have engulfed the community.
On behalf of the Pastor and the committees of our brethren of the Armenian Evangelical Church of Baghdad, we ask for your support and prayers.
