HOW DO CHRISTIANS FACE PERSECUTION?
Let’s have an HONEST CONVERSATION about Persecution of Christians.
Come hear Mr. Karim Yaghleji from Aleppo, Syria and now preparing for the ministry in the Lutheran church. He will provide an account of his experiences in Syria and the U.S. leading from being a Christian in Syria, through persecution, to Bethany Lutheran Seminary.
