Churches Help Syrian Refugees

“And I tell you, you are Peter, and on this rock I will build my church, and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it” (Matthew 16:18). It’s a story as old as Christianity. The church in the Middle East is a rock that will not be shaken. Since the first days of the church, Christians in the Middle East have been committed to loving and helping their neighbors. This continues today. From the outset of the civil war in Syria churches across the Middle East have stood alongside vulnerable families...

Call to Action to End Famine

We are mobilizing prayers and actions to end famine, as we are deeply disturbed that more people face famine today than at any time in modern history. Famine has been declared by the United Nations in South Sudan, while Somalia, Nigeria, and Yemen are on the brink of famine. The situation has been precipitated by a deadly combination of drought, conflicts, marginalization and weak governance.  Across these four countries, 20 million people face starvation and many millions more across the world are experiencing alarming levels of hunger.

Jesus Works Through His Followers to Help the Hungry

The story of Jesus feeding a crowd of over five thousand is hard to forget. People are hungry but there’s not enough food. The need is great—overwhelmingly so—yet Jesus’ power is greater, and he responds as only he can: with miraculous provision. Five loaves and two fish become enough food for thousands—with leftovers! And how does Christ distribute this food? Not by clapping his hands or snapping his fingers to feed everyone in seconds, but by asking his disciples to hand out the loaves and fishes to those in need. His disciples are more than mere witnesses to this remarkable moment of provision—they are active workers in it.

Help in the Midst of Famine in South Sudan

Severe hunger and famine are the words being used to describe its current reality.   Five million people are going to bed hungry and it is the weakest - the young children and the elderly - who are suffering most. The increasing number of deaths is proof of the severity of the crisis.
