Ashur Sargon Eskrya, one of the heroes of the Assyrian Christian people and longtime supporter of efforts to assist them on the ground in the Assyrian homeland, died suddenly on April 9, 2021, shortly after testing positive for COVID-19.

Eskrya was a graduate of Technology University and since 2003 had worked tirelessly to help the Assyrian nation, helping with relief projects in the country, making countless trips outside the country to assist the Assyrian Christian cause and stubbornly staying in the country to be with his people when many others left.

Eskrya was a committed believer, born in Mosul, Iraq, and in addition to his unrelenting efforts to provide assistance to the Assyrian Christian refugees, he never wavered in his belief in the promise of Isaiah 19:23-25, which all Assyrian Christians hold dear as the promise from God that they will have their nation:

“In that day there shall be a highway out of Egypt to Assyria, and the Assyrian shall come into Egypt, and the Egyptian into Assyria, and the Egyptians shall worship with the Assyrians. In that day Israel shall be the third group with Egypt and Assyria, even a blessing in the midst of the earth, whom the Lord of Hosts has blessed, saying, ‘Blessed is Egypt My people, and Assyria the work of My hands, and Israel My inheritance.'”
