A member of an indigenous ministry in Lebanon prays for a Syrian refugee mother. The 1.1 million Syrian refugees in Lebanon render it the country with the largest proportion of refugees relative to its population (4.5 million), and the native ministry is struggling to keep up with needs – and opportunities. Many Muslim refugees from Syria are turning to Christ. The team in Beirut has begun a one-on-one Bible study that takes seekers through the entire Bible. One of the women taking the course, a mother of five children under 10, said she struggles to buy clothes for them and lives in a home without carpet and dishes. "Despite an extremely difficult day-to-day situation, she often expresses how happy she is in the Lord," the ministry director said. "She says, 'Praise God, because now I know who the true, real Jesus is.' We have several people being mentored and would like to use this curriculum with several more individuals in their homes."
