Missionary Memorial Fund - Earlier this week, a group of Christian missionaries were ambushed by insurgents in Iraq. Their names were Larry and Jean Elliott, David McDonnall and Karen Watson. Carrie McDonnall was seriously injured in the attack.
The son of two of those killed, Scott Elliott, is a blogger who runs the site Election Projection. The courage of these missionaries astounds me. Knowing the risks, they willingly entered a war zone to serve God by serving others. The families left behind need our prayers and support.
A memorial fund has been set up to continue the work that Larry and Jean Elliott devoted their lives to doing. If you would like to contribute to this fund, you can send a check made out to "The International Mission Board" with the designation, "Larry and Jean Elliott Memorial Fund" or simply "Elliott Fund" somewhere on the check to:
