Millions of refugees have poured into the countries surrounding Syria over the last few years. They often live packed into garages or tiny apartments. Many of them used to have good jobs, nice houses, two cars, and good education for their children. Now they have nothing.
Global Mission has been helping to fund a school for refugee children in one of these countries. The dedicated Adventist teachers not only do the normal work of a teacher. They not only have to help children who have seen horrible brutalities and often escaped with nothing. But they also take time in the afternoons and evenings to visit from house to house with the families where they talk and pray, study and bring encouragement. Often they find families without food, or whose clothes have worn out, or who have an illness and no money for medications.
Global Mission is trying to raise a fund of $10,000 which could be used to help meet some of these urgent needs.
