The reports of the atrocities of ISIS have been in the news. Perhaps you have watched and read these reports, feeling angry and helpless. You want to do something, but you don’t know what you can do. If you want to help, then partner with us to reach those who are being persecuted.
Millions of refugees have sought shelter in Lebanon where our partner, Pastor G, lives. We have provided him with funds to create family packs with rice, beans, salt, lentils, cooking oil and other essentials to reach over 600 refugee families within his country.
One of those family packs reached an Iraqi family who came face-to-face with ISIS. Before leaving Iraq, the family was attacked and their two-year-old was taken by force. An ISIS man threatened to behead her, while her family watched, if they did not give the man money. They gave him all of their money and gold, along with their car.
The family later fled to Lebanon. The grandmother and the girl arrived at Pastor G’s church. They told him that they had no food, milk or diapers. He gave them a box of food that FTN had provided and some diapers. Now the grandmother comes to the church and brings her granddaughter with her.
Because of people just like you who have partnered with us, we are reaching refugees with Christ’s love. As Pastor G said, “Not only were people touched by the giving and loving ministry, they were also touched by the Holy Spirit. Many have accepted Christ as savior and have asked to attend Bible study and become members in the church. Moreover, even though being in a foreign country and away from family, they have felt a sense of belonging at church. One of the persons who has received a food box said, ‘Through the love you have given me you have shown me who Christ is, and because of that I deny Islam and follow Jesus!’”
Together we are making a difference. We are sharing Christ’s love with people who have faced ISIS. We are bringing them to the Savior. And, we have more to do. So join with us. $50.00 will provide a desperately needed family pack of food and supplies to a refugee family. $500.00 will provide 10.
Donate today, so that we can reach even more people with the love of Christ. Please visit our donations page for more information.
