Operation Restore Sight

A refugee from Syria at an unofficial camp in southern Turkey holds her 1-year-old son; she showed members of a ministry based in Turkey a doctor's report saying he needed eye surgery. "She was crying as she said that in the hospital nobody wanted to talk to them since they don't speak Turkish," the ministry leader said. "She doesn't know where to go and who to talk to. She said she was praying for us because we are not Muslim, yet we are helping them more than those who call themselves Muslim." As the ministry provides diapers, baby formula, food and other badly needed items, the refugees come to respect team members and welcome them into their tents. "Their daily needs are urgent, and most people are in misery," he said. "We try to meet their daily needs and also tell them about Christ. They are not only hungry for food but also hungry and thirsty for the word of God."
