Despite reports of ISIS being defeated in the Middle East, our Partners in the Middle East continue to struggle with the problem of Christians in flight because of their faith.
The following projects help Christians who are forced to flee due to their Christian Faith.
PROJECT: Relief in Kurdistan/ Mosul
This project seeks to provide relief to Internally displaced Christians who have fled from IS militants. It also provides ministry opportunities to the small but growing BMB Church by giving them as a local Church the opportunity to reach out to Yazidi Refugees who are the least supported ethnic group in this situation.
Our partner has identified 3000 Syrian refugees and displaced Iraqi Muslims Yazidi and Christian families on the borders and though this project is aiming to feed 2,400 people.
Distribution of 5000 Bibles and Christian literature also takes place as there is a desire to receive this in spite of the physical desperation.
This project also provides clothing, bedding and other means to control the temperature.
The project also helps refugees to return to their homes and rebuild their lives.
PROJECT: True Vine Church – Evangelistic & Discipleship Programs for New Believers
True Vine Baptist Church (TVC), seeks through this project to disciple at least fifty new believers in year one of the project. Many of these believers come from both a Christian and a non-christian background as a result of TVC work among refugees and the Lebanese hosting community. Many of these new believers need to be discipled to be able to stand strong in the face of persecution as a result of their faith. This project aims also at providing new believers with programs that facilitate their spiritual growth. These programs include spiritual support, bible studies and discipleship classes.
This project also aims at helping new believers bring other from their communities to the Saving knowledge of Christ.

PROJECT: Heart for Lebanon – Syrian Christian Refugees
Through this project, Heart for Lebanon (H4L) will be helping a total of 200 Christian Syrian refugee families in the Lebanon with monthly food and hygiene distributions, regular visitations, spiritual programs and Bible studies, and follow-up visits, as well as Christian literature and Bible distributions. Heart for Lebanon exists to see lives changed and communities transformed, and over the course of the previous project we have been blessed to see this happening among the Syrian Christian refugees that we are serving.
