The Refugee Ministry Fund enables us to provide practical help to the many refugees and internally displaced people throughout the Middle East, predominantly in Egypt, Jordan and Lebanon. We work with a small number of local ministry partners which means we can be sure that each donation gets used for its intended purpose. Using local partners also means they are able to use locally sourced food, fuel, heaters and blankets, which gives excellent value for money. As the refugee population has become more settled, the needs are changing and so less money is spent on relief and more on education for children, community development and relational support. Since April this year, we have been able to make grants totalling almost £20,000 from the fund. Our partners maintain a strong gospel focus, seeking every opportunity to share the good news of Jesus and build disciple-making friendships.
Please pray the Lord's blessing on displaced people, struggling to make a living and longing for clear futures; for eyes and ears open to the gospel; and for strength for church and group leaders under pressure.
