Over the last few days, Assemblies of God personnel have made several reports of AG families being caught in harm's way and tragedy resulting.

Late last week, AG workers in the Middle East reported two young brothers from the Lighthouse School in Gaza were killed when a missile from an F-16 jet fighter hit their home.

In Iraq, increasing chaos surrounds believers as a militant group known as the Islamic State (previously known as ISIS) tightens its grip in and around the city of Mosul. All Christians have been ordered to leave the city (leaving all of their property behind) or be executed.

Reports are that many fleeing families were stopped at checkpoints and stripped of money and personal possessions. It is believed most Christian families have now fled Mosul.

Then, over the weekend, Dutch officials released the names of passengers from the Netherlands who were aboard the Malaysia Airlines Flight 17, which was reportedly shot down over the Ukraine, with no survivors.

Among the passengers were Arnoud Huizen, his wife, and their 2-year-old daughter. Arnoud was a former student at Azusa Theological Seminary in Amsterdam. He worked with Chi Alpha at Free University in Amsterdam and did an internship with Teen Challenge.

Tim Southerland, area director of Northwestern Europe, states, "Arnoud was a diligent student who loved the Lord. His death is a great loss to the Dutch Assemblies of God and also among the missionary family who knew and loved him."

Two women from AG churches in Indonesia were also killed.

"Our hearts go out to families and individuals who are suffering in the collateral damage of the civil conflicts taking place throughout the world," says AG General Superintendent George O. Wood. "These trying times afford a challenge to the church of Jesus Christ to offer comfort to the suffering and convey the compassion, love and message of Christ wherever we can."

Cuban general superintendent's wife dies unexpectedly

Fri, 21 Dec 2012 - 9:56 AM CST

Dania Hunter, wife of Rev. Hector Hunter, the Assemblies of God general superintendent of Cuba for the past 16 years, died unexpectedly Tuesday.

According to AG World Missions reports, Dania Hunter was rushed to the hospital and a short time later, passed away.

"God has sovereignly been at work within the Assemblies of God throughout Cuba under the leadership of Hector and Dania Hunter," says Dick Nicholson, AGWM Latin America/Caribbean regional director. "Please hold the family up in prayer during this difficult time. Sister Dania will be greatly missed."

U.S. AG General Superintendent George Wood expressed his deep regard and sympathy for the Hunter family.

"Through the efforts of Hector and Dania Hunter, the gospel message has been transforming countless lives in Cuba," Wood says. "Their selfless ministry and service to Christ and the people of Cuba, despite difficult circumstances, is truly remarkable. I cannot imagine the family's pain at the loss of Dania, but I pray for the peace and presence of the Holy Spirit to be with them and comfort them."

In 2007, Dr. Wood spoke at the 61st General Council of the Assemblies of God of Cuba. He observed that the church was a vibrant and fast growing church with a heart for their nation.
