A story Never told
20 Miles Closer To Ninveh --> AAS Documentary

A documentary made by filmmaker Lawrence Mansour to cover the lives of the Christians of Iraq. (Chaldean, Assyrian, Syriacs)

The Daily lives of Iraqi Christians are full of many hardships. The sacrifices that families make can be tremendous.
Many have reverted to taking their children to schools that have been funded and built by the Assyrian Aid Society.
AAS will be producing a professional documentary showcasing the daily lives of Chaldean
Assyrian Syriac students in Iraq. The documentary will feature the Surath Schools, which was established in 1991
and has expanded to more than 55 schools with more than 5,000 students abroad.

The Assyrian Aid Society of America (AAS-A) is a 501(c)(3) charitable organization as designated by the United States Internal Revenue Service.

Sounds interesting, thanks for posting. Will watch it when I am home.

I would just recommend the producer to not use the word 'Surath' as a lot of people (especially non-Assyrians) have no idea what it means. The article already mentions several groups and this will confuse people even more.

Just use the word "Assyrian" to denote all these groups.

This is something to look forward to everybody. Lawrence is very talented and passionate about his work.
Quote from: OnPoint

You are truly delusional, you know that. The article says that the LARGEST RELIGION in the world is ISLAM. period. I know that Catholicism is a sect of Christianity, but the article is wise enough to say that ISLAM has surpassed even the largest sect of Christianity which is Catholicism. That clearly shows that there are more Muslims than any other religion.
