Message from a Syrian Christian
"Our hearts is broken for our lost brothers and sisters, but we believe that Jesus is risen from death and he is Alive and he will rise his people from death (those who believe in him ) to be with him for ever. Our condolences to all the families of Martyrs and to the people of Sadad. Continue pray for Sadad. "
