I received the following note from Fr. Andrew White, the Vicar of Baghdad, this morning:
We seriously need your prayers. Every aspect of Iraqi life seems to have stopped working. Our Bishop was due here today but the visa office is not working so his not coming. Our huge need at the moment is for our money for the church , clinic and school. We have all the money but it has not come through to the bank here. All money to our Bank in the IZ has to go via JP Morgan in the US and they have ceased the money for fear of us money laundering in Iraq. We are now in a real crisis. We don't need your money we need our money and your prayer.
