For the love of money is a source of all kinds of evil. Some have been so eager to have it that they have wandered away from the faith and have broken their hearts with many sorrows. But you, man of God, avoid all these things. Strive for righteousness, godliness, faith, love, endurance, and gentleness. - 1Timothy 6:10,11

Pray for Christians in Iraq: The militant group, IS (formerly ISIS), has forced thousands of Iraqi Christians to flee for their lives. The Bible Society team in Iraq, which is helping the refugees, says the need for support is immense. Their request is that Christians must please pray seriously that people around the world are moved to send aid for these Christians fleeing to Erbil in Kurdistan, for Kurdistan – that people continue to live together in peace, and that they have compassion on the refugees, and for our Bible Society team, working to bring help and hope to these traumatised people.
When you pray for our church family, why not contact them – either phone call, sms, email etc – and let them know that they have been in your thoughts and prayers. This will be a great encouragement to all.
