Chaldean ordained in the Wesleyan Church

I was so excited to see that Juliet Jamil, one of our Wesley Seminary students, has been ordained in The Wesleyan Church. See the article here.

You may not know it, but there are still Aramaic speaking Christians in Iraq--exactly the type of Iraqi that faces intense difficulties in the face of antagonists like ISIS. The language understandably has not stood still for two thousand years, but it is exciting to me to know that there are people like Juliet who speak the same language as Jesus while he walked the earth!

Congratulations to Juliet, who has lived in California now for several years since she and her husband left Iraq under Saddam Hussein's regime!
