James the brother of Jesus tells us that “true worship is this, to take care of orphans and widows in their distress…” It is hard to think of a more stressful situation than that faced by the Christians of Iraq and Syria. They are hunted down, raped, sold into slavery, beheaded, starved, crucified…and they are our own brothers and sisters. Their situation is terrifying at best with no end or help in sight.
Sitting in the comforts of our homes or offices right now, it is difficult to imagine fleeing our homes with only our family and the clothes on our backs. We have not been faced with this choice, this necessity of flight as Syrians, such as the family in the video below, are doing right now.
Shown in this video is a Muslim Syrian family who left Syria a year ago fleeing the war, but mainly to escape ISIS. They lost one child to what was probably a curable illness. As the mother says in the video, “Every mother who loses one of her children, she hates life completely. But thank God.” Thank God indeed because even through this tragedy, the family has been open to the gospel of Christ because of the love and aid they are receiving.
We have found a way to clothe and feed these desperate ones. We have teamed with Paul Wilbur ministries to get much needed help to these terrified families of the Middle East. Jesus said “whatever you do for the least of these my brethren, you do it for me.”
Please help today by visiting Wilbur Ministries’ website. Your donation of any size will speed much needed food and clothing to starving men, women and children who are being displaced by ISIS.
Don’t wait; give now to save precious lives, while there is still time. Thank you so much for loving our Messiah and making a difference today!
