While it is true that ISIS is not such a big threat anymore, we must know that the war, violence and persecution in the Middle East and North Africa have not stopped.
People are displaced on a daily basis because they need to flee ongoing violence (political and religious) between warring factions, disunity, greed and century-old wounds that “demand revenge.”
This is happening in Eritrea, Sudan, Somalia, Syria, Iraq, Afghanistan, Pakistan, Yemen and several other nations.
- We need to continue to pray for peace.
- Pray for save conditions so that people can go back to their “homes” (which in many cases are completely destroyed or ransacked).
- Pray for relief agencies to continue to support these people.
- For more Christian NGOs to get involved and for the necessary funding to continue the work.
