Pray for Iraqi Refugee Children Starting School

[395] prayers in [28] nations have been posted for Refugee Children.

More than 100 Iraqi refugee children began school on June 16 with help from a VOM-partner church in the Middle East. The church had originally planned to start with only 25 of the displaced Christian children, but after discussing their goals with parents, more than 100 children were registered. The Christian families were forced to flee Iraq after the Islamic State invaded more than a year ago. Pray for the protection of students and staff and for the challenges they face.
