Jesus Christ, Our Refugee Our Savior isn't just vaguely aware of the refugee crisis on our earth today, He knows exactly what it's like to be a refugee in a strange country. And, no, I'm not just referring to His time in Egypt. I'm referring to the suffering He endured as a displaced person, if you will, on earth. He left all of the beauty, perfection, and majesty of heaven to live as an unwanted, homeless nomad on our planet. He did it for you and for me. . .and for all of the people living as refugees in our world today.

Refugee mother feeding her children.

Survival Rations  

A Syrian mother who has fled the atrocities of war strives to keep her children fed at an unofficial refugee camp in southern Turkey. As winter hits, the greatest needs are for warmth and food, said the director of a ministry based in Turkey that provides aid to about 900 families in refugee camps each month. "Because the mothers are unable to eat healthily, they end up being unable to nurse their babies," he said. "They come to us pleading for baby's milk and Pablum, so this turns out to be the greatest of all the requests coming from these refugees." Families devastated by war ask for milk, vitamins and rice just to survive. "We'd like to help every family, but we give priority to those families with babies and children," the director said. "Your help doesn't only provide food for the needy, but the Gospel is being heard through it all. We thank you for your contributions, and we wish you a very blessed Christmas time."

Christian Aid Mission is a 60-year-old non-profit organization that equips native missionaries around the world. We serve as a non-denominational foreign mission board that assists more than 500 ministries overseas with tens of thousands of indigenous or native missionaries in the field. These ministries are currently engaging more than 1,000 unreached people groups in more than 100 countries around the world. Our mission is to establish a witness for our Lord in every tribe and nation (Matthew 24:14) by assisting highly effective native missionaries and our focus is on reaching the unreached for Christ in areas in the world where there is no witness for Christ, where foreign missionaries are not allowed, or where Christians suffer because of poverty or persecution. Christian Aid Mission is generally considered to be the first U.S. organization to assist and promote native missionaries overseas. Since 1997, Christian Aid has been a member of the Evangelical Council for Financial Accountability (ECFA).
