Fleeing War, Battling to Survive  

More Syrian refugees in Turkey are taking refuge in deserted buildings as Turkish officials try to do away with tent camps, which is unsafe, and as the weather turns cold they are facing grave health risks. "Every day I get dozens of calls, especially from mothers pleading for baby food and diapers," the director of an indigenous ministry said. "Please pray with us that we will find places for homeless people and that nothing bad will happen to them." He knows of 56 families who are homeless and worried about the safety of their children. The ministry seeks assistance to provide food packs, diapers, baby clothes, blankets and bedclothes, as well as clean water and bathroom supplies. "It is very likely that many will face serious illness and death in the coming months, so we are anxious to move as quickly as we can," he said. Please consider enabling indigenous Christian workers to help desperate refugees.

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).

Missions Insider Report is a free email report from Christian Aid, your link to indigenous missionary ministries based in poorer countries overseas, or where evangelical Christians are a persecuted minority. Please pray for these and other indigenous ministries.
