Refugees receiving critically needed food and hygiene kits ask local missionaries why they are helping them, fearing the workers will require something in return. As workers explain the love of God and continue serving them unconditionally, refugees who normally wouldn’t let strangers into their tents or private lives are inviting workers in for tea and sharing their personal problems. As a result, local missionaries are meeting acute physical and spiritual needs. They need donations of $35 or $70 to provide food boxes that last four to six weeks for a family of four, along with other crucial aid. Pray workers will have deep faith to confront unexpected problems amid difficult conditions.
“But you, God, see the trouble of the afflicted; you consider their grief and take it in hand. The victims commit themselves to you; you are the helper of the fatherless.” (Psalm 10:14)
