Jordan and Beyond
Refugee Assistance

Tens of thousands of Christian, Yazadi, and other minority groups have fled Iraq due to warfare and persecution over the past decade. Many have gone to Jordan and live in limbo in places such as Amman (the capital). They are unable to go to a United Nations refugee camp for fear of persecution in the camps as well.

Elias Nawawieh leads our effort to provide assistance to refugee families in Amman. In partnership with a local church, we distribute winter supplies to families (jackets, blankets, other clothes) and food packets to new arrivals. In addition, we connect individuals to medical care in crisis situations.

Our newest efforts help refugees start small businesses so they can begin to provide for themselves as they go through the asylum process.

Our work in Jordan, Iraq, Israel and the West Bank is paused out of caution for everyone involved. Please pray for refugees and other displaced people in the Middle East who are affected in dramatic ways by the virus.

For those who are registered for our Holy Land trip from October 23 – November 1, we will make a decision by July 1 if the trip will happen or not. If postponed, you will have the choice of a full refund or to hold a place for the 2021 tour.
