Help Refugees of Violence and Persecution in the Middle East
Imagine being forced from your home,
held at gunpoint, and told you have 24 hours to convert to a radical
group's beliefs or you and your family will be executed.

Children of Iraqi Christian refugees.
Muslim refugees from Syria in a camp.
Persecution like this occurs daily
through the terror group called ISIS. Sectarian governments persecute
millions more in the Middle East.
This unspeakable evil has produced a
flood of refugees who flee violence in their home countries. Refugees
are overwhelming many nations. The hardest hit is Lebanon, whose population has increased by 30 percent!
These refugees, mostly women and children, survive in circumstances you and I may consider impossible.
The situation looks bleak, but you can help!
Lutheran Hour Ministries' center in
Lebanon provides food and other materials to Christian and Muslim
refugees in Lebanon and Iraq.
Ministering to the body is critical - yet our staff also seeks to reach people's hearts with the Gospel.
How do we do this?
LHM revisits refugee settlements again and again. As we meet theirneeds over time, they see the love of Jesus in us! That opens the door to conversations sharing the light of the Gospel with people who have seen so much darkness.
