Canon Andrew White in America


Dear Friends,
I am back in America to talk about the plight of our Christian brothers and sisters in Iraq. FRRME’s Director of Operations in the Middle East, Dr Sarah Ahmed, is with me. Last Saturday we spoke at the Connect Church in New Jersey. The Church takes its links to our work very seriously and we are very grateful for their continued support. The response to Dr Sarah, a Muslim taking care of persecuted Christians, was overwhelming.

Dr Sarah and I then travelled to Wheaton College in Chicago. The College, which was founded by Abolitionists in the 1860s, has been a central part of our work and ministry for many years and a fair number of our staff and interns have come from there. This week at Wheaton I gave a lecture in the International Politics class of Professor Mark Amstutz, as well as a major public lecture with Dr Sarah which was moderated by Professor Michael McKoy.

I am having a wonderful time teaching at Wheaton. I have been coming to teach here for years and I love it more every time. This week, I was given an official Wheaton hoodie, which goes well with my orange and blue bow-tie. What more could you ask for!

Even when Dr Sarah and I are not in the Middle East, FRRME’s work on the front line continues. This week our team on the ground in Northern Iraq delivered food packages to 400 IDP families at the Debaga Camp outside Erbil.
