We are already in the middle of a busy summer, and that includes Syrian refugee English classes for 40-50 children, teenagers and adults. Please pray for these classes! We are resuming our free refugee English classes at our location in the Middle East this summer, like we have done for the past two years…(Read More)

Pulling out someone’s teeth may not seem like the kindest thing to do to a person, but for dozens of Syrian refugees this past week it was a long-awaited mercy. Living with a rotted, infected tooth – or multiple teeth – for month’s on end, with no ability to go to a dentist, is…(Read More)

For those following along on our Facebook page you’ve no doubt seen the surge of refugee babies coming these past weeks. We’ve been pretty busy with that, and thankful that three more beautiful, healthy refugee babies came yesterday (all three Syrian women went into labor at almost the same time, it was intense…(Read More)

Many thanks to those who are praying for the compassion work out here. Just these first two weeks of May alone we’ve had several babies born, dozens of new medical needs and new opportunities to enable other local churches to serve refugees in their areas as well.

Many midnight scrambles to distant hospitals with pregnant refugee women in active labor in the car. Many trying times praying for finances for…(Read More)

We are starting our third winter out here with the Syrian refugees, and the challenges remain the same as before. Staying warm. It’s something we take for granted back in the USA where central heat is pretty much ubiquitous. Any kind of outage in the winter where people could lose heat and become cold…(Read More)

We know that not everybody praying for and helping the relief work is following our Facebook page, which is where we post most of our ongoing updates. So, we wanted to summarize the medical needs from November for the Syrian refugees coming for help. Just in the past few weeks we have had the following…(Read More)

Summer English classes are already in full swing for the Syrian refugees. We’ve been so busy with ongoing refugee medical issues and the classes themselves I realized this weekend I never posted about the program since it began last month! We’ve had upwards of 60+ students coming on some days, though the steady…(Read More)
