Mesopotamia - 9th century BC
“The word of the Lord came to Jonah son of Amittai: "Go to the great city of Nineveh and preach against it, because its wickedness has come up before me." [Jonah 1:1]. Counted as one of the twelve Prophets, the story of Jonah is told in the book of the Old Testament that bears his name. According to Orthodox tradition, based on ancient Hebrew writings, he was the son of the widow of the village of Zarephath, who was resurrected by the holy Prophet Elias [1 Kings 17:21].

News and Events
“IT’S TIME TO WAKE UP”
Early this summer we celebrated a wedding that included several family members visiting here from Mosul, Iraq. It was wonderful to welcome them and to celebrate such a joyous occasion together. A week later they had returned home to Mosul. Within days of their return the notorious Islamic terrorist group known as The Islamic State [ISIS or Da’ish] overran the area and issued orders that all Christians in Mosul must renounce their faith or be ‘put to the sword’.
