Prayers for Peacemakers, June 10, 2015 Iraqi Kurdistan
Give thanks for the successful completion of the eight-week
psychosocial program in Bazian, Iraqi Kurdistan that brought together youth who
were Arabs from Anbar province, Yazidis from Sinjar mountain, and Syrian
Kurdish and Syrian Arab refugees. CPT partnered with REACH to create an
experiential learning program that focused on communication, team building, and
trust with the multi-faith, multi-cultural group of participants: children aged 11 to 14 and
young people aged 15 to 18.

It is like a mustard seed, which, when sown upon the ground, is the smallest of all the seeds on earth;
yet when it is sown it grows up and becomes the greatest of all shrubs, and puts forth large branches,
so that the birds of the air can make nests in its shade.” Mark 4:30-32
