March 2014 Prayer Calendar
Each week we post a selection of recent online items where you can find out about the latest developments in Iraq. We hope this will help you in understanding the situation in which FRRME operates and in directing your prayers for Iraq.
This week’s issue features an interview with Canon Andrew White posted on the Assyrian International News Agency (AINA).
New York Times: Violence in Iraq killed 703 in February, UN reports

Recently, one of our supporters, David Post – also known as the Cycling Vicar for his fundraising efforts – visited St George’s Church in Baghdad. Since returning he is giving a series of talks to share about his visit and the work of FRRME. Here is what David has to say:
“Following my visit to St. George’s Church in Baghdad in October 2013, I have been planning a series of cycling/speaking tours for 2014, so that I can share, with as many as possible, what I have seen and experienced of the life, worship and work of this amazing Church and its Vicar, Canon Andrew White. I am hoping to encourage many to commit themselves to support all that is done through Andrew and St. George’s, by regular prayer, and by regular giving to FRRME. Visitors will always be welcome at any of these gatherings.”
