Pray for Family of Abu Fadi

[486] prayers in [29] nations have been posted for Family.

Abu Fadi, a Christian from Mosul who fled ISIS in August 2014, died on Oct. 13 from complications due to diabetes and high blood pressure. His family’s home, money and all of their belongings were seized by the Islamic extremists. As they fled the city, they were stopped at ISIS checkpoints, where Abu repeatedly told guards that he wanted to remain a Christian. After making it to a safe location in another country, Abu decided to be baptized. “Praise the Lord for his recent baptism and the pure joy he had in his life these past few months,” a VOM worker said. Please pray for Abu’s wife and family as they mourn his loss.
