Serving refugees in the Arab world

A short-term team serving with the local church
December 2019 – January 2020

This local church is serving Syrian refugees in their city.

A small team is visiting to join in their work for two weeks.

Are you considering long-term service to this region?

Come and be a part of what God is doing in this place.

“Follow God’s example, therefore, as dearly loved children and walk in the way of love.”

Ephesians 5:1

Ways we could help

  • Teaching English

    Teaching conversational English to classes of ten refugee students.

  • Visit refugees in their homes

    Arabic translators will join us on these visits

  • Prayer

    prayer meetings, Sunday school for children

  • Other opportunities

    activities arranged while we are there

The goal

The purpose of this trip is to contribute to the church’s outreach to Syrian refugees. Our main task will be teaching conversational English to refugees, almost all of whom will be Muslim. This may be challenging work.

The team

We are looking for people who are willing to trust God in difficult circumstances. It is for committed Christians who want to grow in their faith. This is not a holiday nor simply an exposure trip.

The living situation

We will be staying in accommodation arranged by the church. It will not be high quality accommodation – the living conditions may be quite sparse, and the food will be different from what you are used to. It will be winter, and could be quite cold.

The story

This trip stretched us, challenged us and showed us that God certainly is working in and through His people and pouring out His love in this seemingly dry and desperate place.
