As I’m sure you’ve seen in the news, Greece is in quite the pickle!  It’s economy is sunk; it’s workers are striking; and all the while Greece is playing host to tens of thousands of refugees.  Please continue to pray for this nation!  Here’s a recent article from the BBC (read the entire article HERE):

Flights have been grounded, many schools are closed and hospitals are operating an emergency-only service.

EU leaders will discuss Greece’s difficulties at a Brussels summit on Thursday amid concern the crisis could threaten the credibility of the euro.
