A New Message from A Pastor in Aleppo, Syria

Dear friends

Today, Tuesday, started as a terrifying day.

After a difficult Sunday morning, the rest of the day was good, and we gathered in the church at 6p.m for our Sunday worship. As well Monday was quiet day in general.

We woke up at 5.45 A.m. because of shooting very close to where we live, then it turned into a real battle, with heavy guns and explosions, and a very loud shouting of Allah wa Akbar – God is great!

It remained like this till 9.15, then stopped till 11.00, when they resumed the fight for half an hour.

And it remained calm till now 3.30P.m without knowing the result of the fight.

Few minutes ago, I went out to walk around and see what happened, nearly all streets are empty and many thieves stealing furniture of military center close to us!

I wrote in the morning on Facebook: It is very unusual to have your morning tea, with the “normal” music of  guns and heavy machine guns and the shouting “allah akbar”!!! Thank you Lord for your presence with us!

Would you please pray for an Iraqi family, attending our church; they can’t go back to Iraq, as there is no answer for their immigration papers, and those who call themselves “revolution” gave the Iraqis and Lebanese 3 day to leave Syria or they will kill them!

Many blessings
