Our hearts go out to the people of Peshawar, and the entire country of Pakistan, as 132+ children and 10 staff who were butchered; to the people of Fallujah, Iraq, where 150 women were killed for refusing marriage or sex with ISIS; to the families & villagers of the 4 Iraqi boys who refused conversion and died, saying, “No, we love Jesus,” and were beheaded by ISIS. May the blessing of God be on their souls and the souls of all the faithful. May his incredible love find fertile ground among non-believers.
