Syria - Rise in Faith. Build with Hope!

"Our misfortunes have relentlessly inflicted great suffering on the faithful, including repeated massacres, savagely perpetrated against peaceful populations in isolated areas of the country. There has been the merciless kidnapping of bishops, priests and religious in their own convents, and the massive destruction of infrastructure, schools, hospitals, churches, shrines, museums, archeological monuments and the annihilation of all that made this country flourish."
Archbishop Jean-Clement Jeanbart of Aleppo, Syria.

Hope, Love and Forgiveness in Iraq

Myriam is a 10-year-old Christian girl whose family was forced to flee their home near Mosul, Iraq when ISIS took control of their town in mid-2014. They fled to Irbil, the autonomous region of Kurdistan where they now live as refugees.

In this video, she tells a story of forgiveness, not hatred, of the terrorists who have put her and her family in harm's way.  Her innocent belief in humanity will give you hope for the future.  She also sings her favorite hymn that will undoubtedbly bring tears to your eyes. 

ACN supports SAT-7, the Christian Satellite TV Station for the Middle East and North Africa responsible for this video.  Myriam’s parents are delighted that their daughter’s simple and pure faith is drawing attention to the desperate situation of Christians in the Middle East.

Marlin Book Persecution

In his new book, author and political commentator George J. Marlin, chairman of Aid to the Church in Need-USA, explores the causes of the sharp rise in Christian persecution in the Middle East. “Christian Persecutions in the Middle East—a 21st Century Tragedy” will be published this spring.

Even before ISIS launched its ultra-violent campaign targeting Iraqi Christians in the summer of 2014, Pope Francis proclaimed that the current wave of Christian persecution in the Middle East is worse than the suffering inflicted on believers in the centuries of the early Church. Since the Arab Spring and the start of the civil war in Syria in 2011, which have thrown the region into utter chaos, Muslim extremists have killed thousands of Christians every year, while destroying and desecrating countless churches. Christian communities in Syria, Iraq, and Egypt have been hardest hit. Read More.
