After 2000 years, there are no more Christians in Mosul (Ninive)

After 2000 years, the last Christian was forced to leave Mosul, Iraq.

Mosul, the ancient Nineveh, was the home of one of the most ancient Christian communities in the world, the Assyrian Christians. Last Friday ISIS gave the Christians the ultimatum:

• convert to Islam,
• pay an impossibly high monthly protection tax in gold,
• leave,
• or die.

By Saturday night the last Christians were gone.
Pray their faith will remain strong, and their witness will be clear. Ask the Lord to speak light into the darkness of this persecution and to glorify His name even in the face of this evil.
