I am from an Assyrian

September 19, 2018 by Jennie Sottovia

I am from an Assyrian Christian family from Urmia. My Christian grandparents escaped Turk/Kurd attack against their Christian community in Urmia around the time of World War 1. They lost everything yet never, that I can remember, spoke of that time of terror. They chose instead to focus on God’s protection over the many months of wandering before finally arriving in Chicago, Illinois. I pray for you with a heart of compassion the words of Psalm 121.
