Syrian refugees in Jordainian church

Finding Joy in Jesus

What lifts a downcast heart faster than singing praise songs to God? These children are Syrian refugees who live in run-down apartment buildings in a city in Jordan. Local evangelical churches offer engaging children´s programs that present the gospel through dramatic skits and music. Somber faces give way to smiles as the kids sing along. Their mothers can´t help but smile too. Church members follow up with home visits that encourage the families and create additional opportunities to share the love of Jesus Christ with them. A Christian Aid-supported ministry in Jordan assists this church and others in the area, providing milk for babies, meals, clothing, and thousands of New Testaments. Their efforts have been very effective in bringing Muslims to Christ.
