Presbyterians urged to pray for Afghanistan

With the conclusion of the airlifts from Kabul’s international airport, which saw the United States and the UK, who were joined by members of the Irish Defence Forces and others, in evacuating nationals, diplomats and ‘vulnerable’ Afghans, the Presbyterian Church in Ireland has urged its members across the island to pray for Afganistan and its people, especially its small Christian community there, and consider responding to the emergency relief effort, as the Taliban take control of the country.
