KIRKUK PRESBYTERIAN CHURCH - IRAQ
FCPC has supported our brothers and sisters in the Middle East for many years. We are constantly inspired and amazed at their perseverance, passion, and faith. Please pray for our brothers and sisters there as they not only support refugees and run an interfaith preschool, they also hold worship, classes, and other outreach programs.
From The Outreach Foundation website:
"Since the summer of 2014, the Presbyterian Church in Iraq has been responding to the displacement by ISIS of Christians and others from Mosul and the Nineveh Plain. In Kirkuk, 100 miles from Mosul, thousands made their way to safe haven, as well as to Baghdad and Basrah. In all three cities, emergency relief continues to be extended by Presbyterian congregations even while they continue in the their 'regular' ministries."

Pray for Rev. Haitham Jazrawi, the leadership of Kirkuk Presbyterian Church, the Preschool Teachers there, and the community of Kirkuk, as well as the country of Iraq.
