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)

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)

This month we are mid-winter in the Middle East, but still have several months to go until things truly warm up…(Read More)

Winter arrived with a sudden, days-long thunderstorm and drizzling rain that rolled into the country. The storm left snow-capped peaks in its wake, the first snow of the year, albeit at a high altitude. Everyone has been bringing out their diesel heaters, jackets and extra blankets (if they even have them) to stave…(Read More)

Education Assistance Program Update Thank you to the many people who offered to sponsor Syrian students for the Education Assistance Program this 2016-2017 school year. The Lord provided sponsors for all the children so far, giving us 21 sponsored students as of today. If you still were interested to participate in this and commit…(Read More)

It was recently that time of year back in the USA where families wrapped up their summer vacations, shopped the back to school sales, and trucked their kids back to school. School is back in session, and two semesters of learning lay ahead for most kids in the USA, whether they like that arrangement or…(Read More)

We are thankful that the Lord has provided helpers this summer to embark on a new endeavor – teaching refugees conversational English during the summer school break! The idea for this came at the request of several refugees and their children who are already enrolled through the UN in ‘normal’ schools in their host country…(Read More)
