KIRKUK, Iraq (Worthy News) - Four people, three Christians and one of Turkish origin, were kidnapped on Sept. 21 according to Middle East Concern. They were returning from a hunting trip when their vehicle was stopped by armed men. The vehicle was found a short time later after it had been burned, with the bodies of the dogs inside.
Iraqi Christians fear this incident is another attack on their presence in Iraq, with the goal of the removal of all Christians from the country.
Requests are made that all of the men, both Christians and the Turk, be released unharmed; they and their families will know the peace and presence of Jesus; and that the kidnappers will know the Holy Ghost's conviction, Jesus' offer of forgiveness, and the God the Father's welcome into relationship with him.
