The mainstream media don’t care much for Christians, so spread the news they won’t! Thousands of Christians in Qaraqosh have returned home to celebrate Psalm Sunday. This would be the first celebration in four years following the defeat of ISIS.
The crowds sang, “King of kings and Lord of lords. Glory! Hallelujah!” as they walked through the streets waving palm and olive branches. The crowd eventually gathered around St John’s Church, as church leaders reportedly stood on the church rooftop to proclaim the gospel and lead the people in worship.

More beautiful pictures of #Syriac #Christians celebrating #PalmSunday in Baghdeda (Qaraqosh), Iraq, for the first time in 4 years or since ISIS was defeated from the area. This town was the largest Christian in Iraq prior to 2014. #IraqiChristians
