Do you have a heart for the Muslim people? Is your heart stirred to help the abused women and children? WMA Mission Lebanon 2021 September 20-30 is the ministry of compassion and love.
Have you ever wondered what a refugee feels like? What experiences do they go through? Can you imagine for a moment that the world around you collapsed? You hear gunfire and bombs in the distance. Every passing hour the fighting comes closer. You and your family are frightened, there is barely enough food in the home to last the next few days. Harsh banging on the door, and a loud voice screams: “Leave now or you will not live”. You and your family flee with just the clothes you are wearing, you follow the soldiers, meet with the thousands of others who are fleeing the war. Your family is confused, frightened and tired. The uncertain promise of food, shelter and safety are your only hope. You left your entire life behind in a way you don’t understand. You don’t know if you can ever go home. Your hope dies as you see the growing number of refugees seeking the same hope as you.
I have just described to you the life stories of several million people living in Lebanon as refugees from Syria and Iraq.
In addition to all the hardships the refugees had gone through, Lebanon was deeply affected by the Covid-19 pandemic and the explosion that happened in Beirut. With the borders being open, we have an incredible opportunity to take hope and help to the people who are in a desperate need.
Through medical missions, refugee support and partnership with local churches we have an unprecedented opportunity to safely share the love of Christ. Watching Muslim believers in Beirut accept Jesus as their Savior has been the highlight of our missions experience. I invite you to experience this too!
Lebanon is rich with history, Biblical history especially. Phoenician, Egyptian, Greek, Persian, Roman, Arab, Crusader, and Ottoman ruins are scattered about the country and the most important of them are easily accessible.
If you are unable to go, will you please consider helping with the outreach to the refugees. The most desperate right now are families with infants and young children. They need food for the kids, baby food, diapers, clothes, formula and other necessary items. We have estimated a $100 per family to help them with one month’s worth of supplies. Would you please consider adopting a family or 2 in this mission of love?
Please let me know if God is calling you on this mission as we have a limited number of spots on this team. I am praying that the Lord hand selects individuals to fulfill this historic mission!
