ISIS Families Flee Last ISIS Stronghold in Syria
5 February 2019
Starving, sick, and wounded families are fleeing the last stronghold of ISIS now. Women who can barely walk carry starving babies, badly wounded girls are carried in filthy blankets, children crying in fear – all of them dirty, freezing, terrified, and hopeless.
Please pray for them, for the remaining ISIS fighters, and their families still holding out. ISIS is down to a very small area in eastern Syria along the Euphrates River and the Iraqi border. There are those who want to give up, but there is also a core of mostly foreign fighters who are still lashing out with suicidal attacks and who swear to fight and kill to the end. Please pray for their hearts to change. Please also pray for the Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) who have sacrificed so much and for the coalition forces who support them.
Thank you for praying for our FBR team who are here now in Syria to give help, hope, and love. Today we gave medical care and clothes and toy lions and lambs from ATP Ministries to the people who fled. We prayed with and tried to comfort the people. We are grateful to the leadership of the SDF who helped us get here as well as the Kurds of Kurdistan in northern Iraq who made this trip possible. We see the results of all this love in the face of evil and suffering.
Thank you and God bless you,
Dave, family, and FBR
