The following update is from the Eurasia Region in light of the Israel-Hamas war and its effect on Nazarene churches in the area.

The local churches in Israel have not been directly affected, but we are analyzing the situation daily. The churches have been helping and supporting their neighbors. As a region, we will continue to support our churches and leaders in the wider Middle East area.

We are praying for peace and an end to suffering for all involved in the tragic circumstances we see unfolding in Israel and Palestine. Please continue to join the region in prayer for the Church of the Nazarene in Israel and throughout the East Mediterranean Field, and also for an end to this conflict, hatred, and suffering.

“At times like these, I take great strength from God’s Word and the reality of his sovereign grace over all circumstances,” said Eurasia Regional Director Jim Ritchie. “So, I pray from Psalm 46 that God would ‘Make wars cease to the ends of the earth,’ that we would know him as our ‘refuge and strength,’ and we would ‘be still and know that he is God.’”

--Eurasia Region Church of the Nazarene

The Cameroon flag is a vertical tricolor of green, red and yellow, defaced with a five-pointed star in its center. The center stripe is thought to stand for unity: red is the colour of unity, and the star is referred to as "the star of unity." The yellow stands for the sun and also the savannas in the northern part of the country, while the green is for the forests in the southern part of Cameroon.
