Political upheaval has presented an unprecedented opportunity to serve the physical and spiritual needs of the people of Syria. Field personnel continue to respond to the overwhelming needs in Syria, as well as in Lebanon and Jordan. The crisis within Syria has created an opportunity for many Syrians to hear the gospel for the first time, usually while experiencing the tangible love of Jesus Christ through one of his followers serving them in their most desperate need. The opportunities for ministry in this crisis are overwhelming and the resources and laborers are few. Through the funding of this request, thousands of Syrians can be impacted by the love of Christ and can gain access to the gospel.
