As I write this, Hurricane Irma is just finishing its weekend churn over Florida. Nobody knows yet what the extent of damage will be from this new storm, and we pray they might be spared the same level of destruction Houston saw last month from Hurricane Harvey!

Harvey Relief team

It’s only been a few days, but the first team into the storm affected areas in Houston already hit the ground running!

It is no question we are living in extraordinary times.

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!

handicapped refugees

This week we had the joy of delivering a long-promised electric wheelchair to a disabled refugee. He was so happy he was wiping tears away with a rag using his only good arm. We met him last year. He is the crippled and mentally disabled son of an old shaykh in the refugee community…(Read More)

UPDATE: For the latest on the refugee pregnancy assistance program see our page specifically for it: Pregnant Syrian Refugee Relief When we began to help the first pregnant refugee out here last fall of 2016, we did not expect that within the next 7 months we would have 18 more refugee women come seeking help…(Read More)

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)
