A refugee from war in Syria washes clothes at a makeshift camp in southern Turkey, where thousands of people fleeing atrocities by the Islamic State and others continue to arrive. The leader of a ministry based in Tukey reported refugees were grateful to receive food, water, clothing and other aid made possible by donors to Christian Aid Mission. "We got the help you provided to the needy people as quickly as possible," he said. "And we are thankful that 150 more are now seeking to know more about Him. These numbers are amazing to us, and we believe that even more people can be reached. So far about 100 people have accepted Jesus as their Lord and Savior and have been baptized." The ministry has served about 6,000 refugees in the last two and a half years. "The situation of the refugees here is getting worse every day, and they are worried about their lives," the director said. "It would be very beneficial if we could provide a more extensive aid program."
