A Request for Your Prayers ... from the Christian Peacemaker Team

Dear all,

Below is a letter from a young Palestinian friend in Baghdad who worked with CPT to another of my team mates. He is 21 years old and has received a death threat from the Badr brigade (a Shi'a group) and is very frightened. He is Palestinian (Sunni) and thinks the threat may have come because of his work with CPT in accompanying the Palestinians to the Syrian border (the trip that CPT accompanied was in October last year) or for our work with them in Baladiat (their neighborhood in Baghdad). This beautiful young man is full of the joy of life and is very brave. If he is frightened for his life, the threat is real. Please keep him and his family in your prayers. (I have removed all names for security reasons).

Peace & thanks,

CPT Team member
