Iraq trip update

I just returned from Iraq, my first visit in two years due to all the Covid restrictions. I was able to visit with our good friends including Fr. Benoka in Bartella where several businesses are based and Father, now Bishop, Thabet. Most importantly I managed to visit 9 of the business we are supporting due to your help. Over the next week or two I'll update you with news and pictures. If you want a more detailed description of the current political situation, and how our Christian brethren are still suffering - look out for my piece at the National Catholic Register. Sadly I could not get in to Syria, despite having a visa - they required a 6-8 day quarantine, which made it impossible. I hope to get there before the summer - please continue to pray for the suffering people in Syria and Lebanon, where conditions are extremely serious.
