MIA Prayer Intention for the Coming Week - Malaysia Airline Victims in the Ukraine
MIA joins in prayer for the 298 victims—80 children and three infants are among the dead—of the missile strike on Malaysia Airlines flight MH17, and for their relatives, friends and colleagues.
Figures released by Malaysia Airlines show the plane was carrying 189 Dutch nationals, 29 Australians, 44 Malaysians (including 15 crew), 12 Indonesians and 10 Britons, along with a number of other nationalities.
While these nations lost their citizens, we are all impacted by the shock and manner in which these lives were taken — so suddenly, so violently.
We join with all persons everywhere who strive and work for a culture of nonviolence and a world at peace.
