Pray for Syria - facebook page

An Evangelical Christian church for Muslim converts has opened in the Syrian city of Kobani, previously besieged by the Islamic State. Pointing to the experience of war and the oppressive and hardliner interpretation of Islam promoted by ISIS, worshipers said these factors played a role in their decision to convert. Muslim scholars from around the world have condemned ISIS’ interpretation of Islam, but the faith of some in the Kobani community had been affected by extremist violence. “After the war with Islamic State people were looking for the right path, and distancing themselves from Islam,” Omar Firas, the founder of Kobani's evangelical church, told the news agency. Pray that the Church will flourish and grow. Pray that the Church will do the will of God(The Bible, 1 Peter 2:15).
