OSMTH-I on Christian Crisis in Syria, Egypt with refugee needs in Jordon, Turkey & Iraq
Midyat Update #1

Dear Friends,

Yesterday I arrived in Midyat in Eastern Turkey with my colleague Bassam Ishak and a team from the International Center For Religion and Diplomacy in Washington DC to conduct back to back conferences with Kurdish, Syriac Christian and Arab Bedouin tribal leaders. This is focused on the Syrian conflict.

Utilizing our unique Faith-Based Reconciliation process the first conference will focus on creating a social contract for the Al-Hassake region of Syria so that the major communities can work out the principles for living together. The second conference will focus on political power sharing and regional security.

The FBR process is designed to create softened hearts so as to enable the participants to engage in constructive joint problem solving.

We are already encountering challenges with the invited participant leaders. Some are being pressured to not come. One Kurdish political party within Syria is actively trying to undermine the conference. No one ever said this was going to be easy. Right now Syria is the roughest neighborhood in the world. As such, I am glad that our prayer & fasting team is already here on site to pray into these challenges in real time.

Please keep us in your prayer: Bassam Ishak ( Syria) Chander & Kanta Khanna (India) Dana Moldovan (Romania) Ninos Barsoum (Syria) and me.
