What is God doing in Syria you might ask in the midst of seeming interminable destruction and death? Be encouraged, “I will build my church” continues even here.
|Many new house churches have been planted in Syria in the past six years, even in war-torn Aleppo. People from minority groups, fundamentalist Muslim backgrounds and some from Christian backgrounds have encountered Jesus for the first time. “There are beautiful people striving to serve their communities throughout Syria,” said a VOM worker who recently returned from Syria. Because of these new believers, there is a great need for mature Christian leaders throughout the country. Pray for those helping develop Christian leaders in Syria and for the faith of the many new believers there.
