Ministry in Jordan
The Bible Society of Jordan are ministering in a time of great upheaval in the Middle East. There are people from 17 different nationalities currently residing in Jordan. Many have been forced to flee war zones in their own homes. Among these misplaced people are around 1.5 million Syrians who have found a safe haven in Jordan for now.
The Bible Society is assisting displaced people in whatever way they can, demonstrating the love of Christ in practical ways.

counselling and open their hearts to the peace of Jesus. (Photo shows a women's
Providing Scripture to Jordanian Christians is also important.
Despite Christians being a minority, the Bible Society are able to have an open presence. They are a registered association at the ministry of culture. As a result they can supply bookstores with Bibles, host stands at book fairs and book tables at exhibitions. This opens up great opportunities to make God’s Word available to the wider community.
