A new documentary entitled Mountain of Servants tells the story of five Syriac Christians who struggle to protect their small Christian community. Daniel Lombroso, the filmmaker behind the project, said he “hopes this little-known story of the Syriacs makes a difference in how people see the region and its diverse communities.” This documentary reminds us that perseverance and struggle are a necessary part of the Christian life.  Small Christian communities like the one portrayed in this film are scattered all over the world. Let us not forget to pray for them! Watch the documentary above and let us know what you think.
