Ministry among refugees in Lebanon

This story could be multiplied numerous times in churches all over Lebanon as a new openness to the gospel is evident among the millions of displaced from Syria and Iraq.

A Syrian family is committed to reaching out to other Syrians who have fled

into Lebanon because of the civil war. “Hakim,” his wife “Yara” and their

children are part of a team led by VOM partners which distributes food,

blankets, stoves, oil and Christian literature to Muslim Syrian refugees. During

a recent distribution to fifty families, Hakim and Yara helped ensure that each

of the families received not only a blanket, but a New Testament and a

children’s Bible, as well. The VOM team asks for ongoing prayers that “God

will open all these families’ hearts through the literature they have taken.”

Pray for Syrian Refugee Families

Pray that the thousands of Syrians who are living as refugees in Lebanon and other areas would be open to the Gospel

message from fellow Syrians and others who hand out relief items as well as New Testaments and other Christian

literature. Many Syrians are professionals who have had to leave everything. They are now without work and have no place

to send their children for schooling as the crisis continues.

“… meanwhile praying also for us, that God would open to us a door for the word, to speak the mystery of Christ, for which I

am also in chains …” Colossians 4:3

VOM is providing support to Syrian refugees and has provided tuition for at least 100 refugee children
