Introducing Pastor Steven from Rwanda:

Pastor Steven

Pastor Steven Turikunkiko has set up a community in Rwanda for victims of the genocide. 160 widows & teenagers & 80 younger children live with him; farming, sharing their lives and caring for those dying from AIDS. The community subsists on less than $1 per person per day.

At enormous personal sacrifice, Pastor Steven and his wife have also adopted 20 orphans - who live with them and their 2 other children.

"Help us!" - plea from Iraqi Christians

Previous | Next

Iraq flagThe Chaldean Archibishop of Kirkuk, Lewis Sako, has asked western Christians to help the Christians of Iraq, “The West should welcome Iraqi Christians but at the same time it should influence the authorities in Bagdad so that Christians who would like to stay in the country can stay there and be safe”.

Lewis Sako claimed that, “Iraqi Christians are a treasure of the Universal Church. We can’t forget about them, we can’t leave them face-to-face with the complete Islamization being carried out by the extremists. Western Christians should understand how serious the tragedy of Iraqi Christians is, as most of them have suffered for their faith.”

The statistics are alarming. 30 years ago, 5% of the population were Christians. Now, less than 3% are Christians.

The Archbishop wants Western churches to help with opening schools, training medical professionals and set up agricultural projects in particular. These would create many jobs and, ultimately, bring hope to the suffering people.

Please continue to hold Archbishop Sako and the Christian population of Iraq in your prayers.
