medicines for refugees May 2019

The path towards progress seems to be in the cumulation of many small, insignificant acts all working towards a larger end. The medical work amongst the refugees these past months seems to be no exception! We’ve had countless hospital runs, doctors visits, and face-to-face assessments with sick refugees this month. Each week…(Read More)

Spring is finally here and the worst of the winter weather is behind us, or at least we hope so! With spring’s arrival, we also had the arrival of a very experienced field dentist, Dr. Jack from GDM Ministries. He spent most of last week with our group of mountain refugees giving them some…(Read More)

winter storms affecting Syrian refugees

Multiple winter storms have hit our area of the Middle East in recent weeks, creating new challenges for the refugees we work with. The mountains have seen heavy snowfall and freezing temps even at altitudes just below the snow line. The lowlands and metro areas have had large amounts of destructive flash flooding. Even the…(Read More)

Last week, we had 6 babies born in one day! The Lord answered prayer for safe deliveries, and all the women made it to the hospital before delivering too. Four of them are from the same mother, quadruplets mentioned in the previous update. All four quads are in the NICU. The two boys were having…(Read More)

syrian dental relief

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)

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! 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)

It may feel like Houston is forgotten, but we still have some faithful volunteers heading down to help this winter, with some even coming back for a second time! We still have several partially or completely gutted homes in the Houston area that we committed to seeing through to the end if volunteers were available…(Read More)
