Friday, January 7 – Greece
A Syrian refugee who had lost his ability to walk without aids in an airstrike arrived at a local ministry’s office with his wife and four children, homeless and hungry. Workers provided him legal help, a wheelchair and baby formula for his infant child, and as he left he thanked staff members for giving him hope. The local ministry provides legal assistance and other means of integrating into society to about 750 such people each month, and it distributes food and other goods to many others. Staff members need donations of $35 or $70 to provide such compassionate aid to a continuing stream of refugees. Pray for more workers, and for the refugees to recover their lives.
“God sets the solitary in families; He brings out those who are bound into prosperity; But the rebellious dwell in a dry land.” (Psalm 68:6)
