It is our firm belief that Jesus truly had compassion upon the suffering in this world. He helped the sick and poor not just to preach to them, but out of a true sympathy for their suffering. We seek to follow Christ in this path of love for our fellow man. We judge that the suffering in the Middle East - especially amongst Syrian and Iraqi refugees - is among the greatest suffering in the world right now. Christians have a Biblical responsibility to serve these suffering refugees, and in this service the Gospel will shine forth all the more clearly both in word and deeds.
