For those of you who pray - urgent request

I cannot vouch for the facts other than the source is a trusted one at my father's church.


A friend just got a text message from her brother asking her to shower him
and his parish in prayer. He is part of a mission and ISIS has taken over
the town they are in today. He said ISIS is systematically going house to
house to all the Christians and asking the children to denounce Jesus. He
said so far not one child has. And so far all have consequently been
killed. But not the parents.
The UN has withdrawn and the missionaries are on their own. They are
determined to stick it out for the sake of the families - even if it means
their own deaths. He is very afraid, has no idea how to even begin
ministering to these families who have seen their children martyred. Yet he
says he knows God has called him for some reason to be his voice and hands
at this place at this time. Even so, he is begging prayers for his courage
to live out his vocation in such dire circumstances. And like the children
accept martyrdom if he is called to do so.
She asked me to ask everyone we know to please pray for them. These brave
parents instilled such a fervent faith in their children that they chose
martyrdom. Please surround them in their loss with your prayers for hope
and perseverance.
She was able to talk to her brother briefly by phone. She didn't say it but
I believe she believes it will be their last conversation. Pray for her
too. She said he just kept asking her to help him know what to do and do
it. She told him to tell the families we ARE praying for them and they are
not alone or forgotten -- no matter what. Her e mail broke my heart. Please
keep all in your prayers. Thanks
This came this morning... Just a few minutes ago I received the following
text message on my phone from Sean Malone who leads Crisis Relief
International (CRI). We then spoke briefly on the phone and I assured him
that we would share this urgent prayer need with all of our contacts.
"We lost the city of Queragosh (Qaraqosh). It fell to ISIS and they are
beheading children systematically. This is the city we have been smuggling
food too. ISIS has pushed back Peshmerga (Kurdish forces) and is within 10
minutes of where our CRI team is working. Thousands more fled into the city
of Erbil last night. The UN evacuated it's staff in Erbil. Our team is
unmoved and will stay. Prayer cover needed!"
Please pray sincerely for the deliverance of the people of Northern Iraq
from the terrible advancement of ISIS and its extreme Islamic goals for
mass conversion or death for Christians across this region. May I plead
with you not to ignore this email.
Do not forward it before you have prayed through it. Then send it to as
many people as possible. Send it to friends and Christians you may know.
Send it to your prayer group. Send it to your pastor and phone him/her to
pray on Sunday during the service - making a special time of prayer for
this. We need to stand in the gap for our fellow Christians.


Very unclear how true any of this is in specific terms.

I, too, have received similar e-mails. True, or not, I'd suspect that, in this case, the circumstance is very true, and there are those who have chosen to remain to render aid, despite the risks.
