Clothes for the Cold  

A refugee from the atrocities of war in Syria receives clothes to help keep her young son warm at a makeshift camp in southern Turkey. Refugees in Turkey's unofficial camps are in desperate need for nylon tent covers, blankets, clothes, medicines, and mattresses. "If we help them in this situation, their hearts will be opened, and we are sure that salvation will come to them," the director of a ministry based in the area said. Ministry teams are also providing food and clean drinking water to refugees who continue flooding into the camps. "About 160 Syrian refugees have accepted Jesus as their Savior, which is a great success, but we have to work together to increase this number," the director said. "We wish that they were not suffering, but they are, and we want to be able to meet their basic needs. We also want to distribute Arabic Bibles to them as well. So we will continue to confidently tell these oppressed people that Jesus is the only living God who can save us all."

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).
