There is speculation that 25 people who are deaf that reside in Syria have been reported to be missing or taken by ISIS. Neville Muir of Deaf International Ministries reported this yesterday morning to their congregation and now many are using social media to spread the news. As of right now, there is very little information about what exactly happened or what is being done about this situation. Nor has there been any official news source to confirm either. Michael Gantt of Brattleboro, VT, wrote the following on his post,
URGENT PRAYER REQUEST: As many of our friends know, the Immanuel Deaf School is an arm of Deaf Ministries International (based in Australia). They have churches and schools all over the world. WE LEARNED THIS MORNING (via International Director, Neville Muir) that 25 MEMBERS OF THE IMMANUEL DEAF CHURCH IN SYRIA have been taken by ISIS. Their whereabouts and fate are unknown at this time. Please stop whatever you are doing and PRAY for these dear saints.
