Exclusive stories from the mission field
The refugee family of a disabled young girl was unable to bring her wheelchair to Turkey when they fled Syria, forcing her to crawl on the ground, but her grandfather refused to let local missionaries help.
Other refugees had told her family that there were people from a church who could help, but when her grandfather heard it, his face was flushed with anger.
“They never help anyone without expecting something in return,” he said. “Don’t begin any type of relationship with them, because they are going to want something from you.”
