“Today’s pictures are too awful to show. You know I love to show photos but the photo I was sent today was the most awful I have ever seen. A family of 8 all shot through the face laying in a pool of blood with their Bible open on the couch. They would not convert it cost them there life. This is Iraq today. The only hope and consolation is that all these dear people are now all with Yesua in Glory.” (Canon Andrew White, 4 August, Baghdad)
