Sticking Together  

Syrian refugee children in Lebanon may have lost everything, but they have each other. Some refugees are returning to their homes as Islamic State (ISIS) militants have lost the major cities they'd seized, but an indigenous ministry in Lebanon reports Syrian refugees continue to stream in. One refugee, Abdel, fled to Lebanon after learning that ISIS had pillaged his home and slaughtered villagers. A devout Muslim, he sought help from an indigenous missionary's church. "With every worship song and word that was spoken, Abdel could feel a mountain being lifted off his shoulders and a peace that surpassed all understanding," the ministry director said. "Abdel established a growing and flourishing relationship with Jesus, and his family started coming to church regularly." Hundreds of refugees are coming to Christ each year in Lebanon; pray for their growth and safety, and please consider a gift to help the indigenous missionaries who are reaching out to them.

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).
