Dear Friends,

 

Today we had a very moving service in the Peace Cathedral. We had a liturgy in solidarity with Yezidi people.
It was attended by Yezdi religious and secular leaders both from Georgia and Iraq. The refugees from Iraq spoke
with the tears on their eyes of all the atrocities that have seen and experienced.

 

“Yours is the only church which has given solidarity in our suffering” told me Dim Firbar, the religious leaders of
Yezidi community.

“Your service let the refugees know what Christians really are.” said the leader of Yezidi women’s association.

 

Sadly we are indeed the only religious group who expressed the solidarity with the Yezidi refugees in
Georgia. We need support to support them. For the time being we have twenty families here in Tbilisi. The number
of refugees is growing on a daily bases.

 

Yours,
