Posts Currently viewing the category: "Active Missions"

Though it’s only been two weeks since the last medical ministry update, it’s been a packed two weeks. Five babies born already this month; four of them were born in a row with one each day for the first week of April! The ladies were busy going up and down the mountain all…(Read More)

This is a quick update on two more healthy Syrian refugee babies born last week. One is a little girl, the other a little boy, and both of them are over 10 pounds each! We thank God that the deliveries went well. One was almost delivered on the highway. What happened? The team went to…(Read More)

It’s hard to believe but as of this week we count 49 refugee babies delivered since we began helping pregnant Syrian refugee women last year. It’s been a busy year!

EAP Program Update

We are incredibly thankful to the sponsors who stepped in last fall 2016 to sponsor the Syrian children to enable them to attend school. We are halfway through the second semester, and are glad to see the Lord’s answers to prayer in providing for these kids. They are happy to be back in school…(Read More)
