New Believers in Syria and an Ambulance for the Front Line
22 January, 2021
Thank you all that we can keep sending emergency help to Syria. Hamdu (photos below), one of our new FBR team leaders in Syria, is helping people under attack in the Ein Issa (Eyes of Jesus) area. This is where we were on the October mission this year and where a FBR team just finished another mission this month.
We first met Hamdu on the road as people ran from the Turks and FSA during the Turkish invasion of 2019. Right after we met him, Hamdu helped us rescue a trapped women in an area under attack. Just a few days earlier his family had fled the area and lost their home and possessions. After he found a place for his family, he came back to the front to see how he could help, as he had some medical experience. We met and he joined us for the rest of the mission and especially helping Karen with GLC. Two weeks later he became a follower of Jesus and now has nine IDP families who want to start a church. He is a wonderful and brave man whose favorite English word is “exactly!”
In Syria, our top FBR leader is Bashir and right now, in the field, we have Hamdu leading a small relief team. Recently he also helped coordinate the delivery of an ambulance to help move wounded in Ein Issa. This was an answer to prayer and we thank you all who support this mission for making this possible. Thanks for helping us help those in need. Please pray as God leads you for Hamdu, Bashir and our Syrian-Kurdish team there.
Love Dave, family and team
