5 Year Old Christian Boy Cut in Half in Iraq - Please PRAY
A 5-year-old boy, who was the son of a founding member of St. George's Anglican Church in Baghdad, was killed by Islamic State terrorists, better known as ISIS, He was cut in half during an attack on the Christian town of Qaraqosh.
"I'm almost in tears because I've just had somebody in my room whose little child was cut in half," Anglican Canon Andrew White of St. George's Church told the Anglican Communion News Service Friday. "I baptized his child in my church in Baghdad. This little boy, they named him after me — he was called Andrew." The Christian refugees who fled to Qaraqosh seeking shelter in the Christian town were forced to flee again by the tens of thousands.
The deceased boy's parents, have fled with other Christians to the city of Arbil, where the U.S. consulate is located. President Barack Obama said this area would be protected by the U.S. military during the airstrikes against Islamic State.
Iraqi Christians have said "We need two things: prayer and money,". "With those two we can do something. Without those we can do nothing."
