Conferences on persecuted Christians in Iraq and Syria 2017

Fr. Luis Montes, IVE, missionary of Iraq, and Sr. Guadalupe, former Provincial Superior of the Middle East and missionary in Syria for 4 years, had visited our Provine of East Asia on July 2017 to give testimonies in Hong Kong, Taiwan and the Philippines on the Faith of the persecuted Christians in Iraq and Syria. They shared their lives as missionaries in Iraq and Syria, being the eyewitnesses of the suffering of Christians in the midst of terrorist attacks targeted at the followers of Christ. Yet in face of war and persecution, the faith of the persecuted Chritians became even stronger, for they came to realize and believed that there is nothing to be afraid for those who can kill the body but not the soul. In the persecuted members of Christ they also testified to the whole world the Christian value of forgiveness and love.Two missionaries encouraged the participants of the conferences to imitate the faith and example of the suffering Christians, and to pray for them and for ourselves so that our faith may not falter. They also invited all to pray for the conversion of the persecutors.For more photos
