Dear friends,

Today, on World Refugee Day, we are asking you to be part of the hope the Lord is providing even in the midst of a desperate situation.

The stories are difficult to imagine. One family fled Syria because their son had been tortured with electric shock. Even as they found safety in Turkey, the mother was concerned about her younger son’s eyesight after shrapnel had penetrated his eye when a bomb detonated. The suffering this family had endured at the hands of ISIS was devastating. Our team in Turkey listened and prayed and through God’s faithfulness, the young son received proper medical treatment and his eye was saved.

We are continually reminded of how God is working even in the midst of all this suffering.

June 20 is World Refugee Day and with more refugees in our world today than since the end of the Second World War, the situation is truly a crisis. But since the beginning of this year, the Lord has provided a way for International Needs to bring hope to nearly 1,800 Syrian, Kurdish, and Sudanese refugees.

Will you join us and be part of bringing that hope?

International Needs teams are on the ground in these challenging areas of the world, working to meet both the physical and spiritual needs of refugees. This includes things like educational assistance so children can continue school and clothing and food vouchers for families who need help making ends meet. As our teams have built up relationships of trust with these refugees, their hearts are now more open to hearing about how Jesus Christ loves them. The Lord is at work!

We want to continue this critical work and need your help to fund one year of ministry focused on Syrian refugees in Turkey. We need to raise $4,000 for this important work. Your gift of $25, $50, or $100 goes a long way in providing hope for people in these desperate situations. Will you help?

Please give today!

With you serving Him,
