Ten Christian missionaries and a 12-year-old boy lost their lives in August after they were executed by the barbaric Islamic group ISIS because they refused to deny Christ.
Christian Aid Mission (CAM) reports that on Aug. 7th, the indigenous missionaries were captured near Aleppo, Syria after rejecting advice by their ministry director to leave the area due to violence. The men chose to stay to share the gospel with those suffering from the ISIS insurgency.
“Every time we talked to them, they were always saying, ‘We want to stay here. This is what God has told us to do. This is what we want to do,’” the unidentified director told CAM. “They just wanted to stay and share the gospel.”
