An Assyrian family was forced to leave their home, business and community in northern Syria because of the war. As refugees, they began attending prayer meetings, a Bible study, and the whole family soon put their faith in Jesus.

‘Saif’ invited twenty more Assyrian families to join the meetings and many of these families also became new converts.

In one meeting, one family asked, “Why would God allow for misery, persecution, and destruction to take over the Assyrian, the people who have first accepted Jesus thousands of years ago and speak His language to date?” ‘Naama’ responded, “We, as Assyrian, have known the truth thousands of years ago, yet we have never glorified God or walked on His steps! Today we need to repent and ask for God’s forgiveness!”

Saif and Naama recently moved to another country and hope to plant a church to serve the Assyrians there.

  • Thank the Lord for the way He is working in this community to bring hope during this time of unrest.
  • Pray the Gospel will continue to spread to further extend His kingdom in the Middle East.
  • Thank the Lord for the faithfulness of Saif and Naama, pray the Lord will go before them and also protect them as they live and work as His disciples.
