Syrian Refugees in flooded camps.

Cold Refuge  

Icy rains have hit makeshift refugee camps in southern Turkey, where missionaries native to the country are striving to provide heaters, wood for burning, baby clothes, food boxes, baby formula and other items critical for survival. An indigenous ministry seeks assistance to provide 300 to 400 tents with such aid, along with copies of the Bible. This month the ministry director said three Syrian refugees had put their faith in Christ. "We have been preaching the gospel with this family since last year," he said. "After a long period of work, we are gradually gathering the fruits we have planted. If we had not had your help, we could not have gained the trust of these people. As long as these benefits continue to come, we can spend more time with them and provide them with the necessary materials. We believe that Jesus Christ will provide everything we need for whom those thirsty and looking for salvation."

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).
