From The Voice of the Martyrs:


“Thousands of Syrian refugees have poured into Iraq to escape war in their homeland.  One area where refugees have settled has 41 established mosques.  Of those 41 mosques, not one has provided assistance to the refugees, even though they are virtually all Muslims. 

The refugees fled Syria with little more than the clothes on their backs.  As the war drags on, there is little hope that they will be able to return home anytime soon.

“Ferhad,” a former Muslim, witnessed the desperate need of the refugees, including many children.  He encouraged them and prayed about how he could make a difference.  Ferhad then began to share his faith with the refugees and distributed help provided by The Voice of the Martyrs.

“Even when Muslim neighbors refused to help their own brothers, it was Christian outsiders who met the needs of the refugees,” said a refugee that Ferhad helped. “When I witnessed the love of Christians, I saw what I was missing in Islam and I decided to follow Christ.”

The Voice of the Martyrs has met many Christians like Ferhad who are using this incredible opportunity to share the love of Christ with Syrians who have lost everything in the war.  As Christ told His disciples:  The fields are white for harvest!

“Do you not say, ‘There are still four months and then comes the harvest’?  Behold, I say to you, lift up your eyes and look at the fields, for they are already white for harvest!” –The words of Jesus Christ (John 4:35)

There are 3 ways to help:

1) PRAY for the refugees.  Thank God for their precious lives and ask that they be made able to receive the Good News of Salvation in Christ Jesus.

2) You can pack your own Syrian Outreach Packs.  Simply order the empty packs and fill them with items from an enclosed list. For example:  Blanket, Knit hat, bed sheet, socks, solid color t-shirt, towel, bar of soap.  Please do not include anything other than the listed items —  no notes, literature, etc.  Also, do not include clothing items with images or text (such as a t-shirt with an image or words).  Do NOT include your name, return address or other contact info.  Each Outreach Pack is $7.

3) If you do not want to fill the bag yourself, you can sponsor a Syrian Outreach Pack and it will be filled for you in the country where it is distributed.  Each sponsored pack is $30.
