As the economy has deteriorated, local missionaries have stepped up aid for the growing number of poor among both the Lebanese and refugees. Workers who provided mattresses, food boxes, medication, clothing, fuel vouchers and cash assistance had the opportunity to pray for needy families as they visited their homes. Such aid has helped build trust and relationships for proclaiming Christ, and the many Syrian refugees and Lebanese who have put their faith in Christ are helping to distribute aid. Donations of $35 or $70 are sought for such compassionate outreach. Pray that lives will not only be saved but turned toward Christ.
“But if the Spirit of Him who raised Jesus from the dead dwells in you, He who raised Christ from the dead will also give life to your mortal bodies through His Spirit who dwells in you.” (Romans 8:11)
