Preparing Relief Packages and praying for it.

Started this month Remedial Classes for internally displaced children who lost their last school year…

Ministry amongst non-Christian families children who lost their last school year…

Outcome blessings
Outcome… Blessings too… البركات

  • Wide spread of God’s Word in Syria through the ministry amongst Internally Displaced Families

  • Reaching people from non-Christian background who initially had negative positions vis-à-vis Christ

  • Distribution of Christian literature and Bibles

  • People surrendering their lives to Christ

  • Revival in the Church manifested in that the “church” as a whole now owns the ministry of compassion not only the pastor.

  • Start of inter-church cooperation, both amongst Evangelical churches, as well as with historical churches.

Challenges… too… التحديات

  • Large numbers of people are dying before receiving the Word of God

  • Physical risk on us as we move about in the ministry field.

  • Risk of being misunderstood by both sides of the conflict.

  • The fast increase in number of displaced families is leading us to reduce the size of the food parcels to be able to respond to the needs of a larger number of families.

  • The long-term timeframe of the crisis is giving rise of daily emergent needs, necessitating the presence of a fully-focused team.

  • Absence of space to gather the people for ministry.

Prayer requests
Prayer Requests too… طلبات الصلاة

  • That the cup of war be taken away from our country Syria.

  • That the Lord may crush the conspiracy of the evil ones…

  • That He may send the power of His Holy Spirit on His church that it may reach out to the suffering souls

  • That the Lord may give us to speak with great boldness and that many wonders and signs be performed … and souls return to Christ

  • That the Lord may send more help that the house of the Lord may have food to satisfy the needs of the internally displaced … hundreds of whom are without any shelter.

  • That the Lord may send more support for the wounded and the sick who need surgery, medication, and healing.

  • That the Lord may send those who can help us build a center for children affected by the war, that we may be able to take care of those who have lost their supporters, and enable them to get back on their feet.

  • That the Lord may send those who can help our children who are now disabled, and have special needs.
