Islamic militants are driving hundreds of thousands of Syrian Christians from their homes, causing Christian leaders to fear that without help from the outside, the Syrian church may disappear.
But there is one group on the inside, the country’s Kurdish population, who are friendly to both America and Syrian Christians, and they are offering hope.
Recently, Syrian rebels opened fire on a government army tank protecting an ancient Christian site in the city of Saidnaya.
The House of Cherubim Church and Convent are located there, as well as a giant Jesus statue locals say is larger than the one in Rio de Janiero.
