Despite the unrest in Syria, Bible distribution remains the main focus of the Bible Society. They want to provide the Gospel to all who are seeking it. People are turning to God in these difficult circumstances and the demand for Bibles is always high.
Like every other country in the world Syria has also been affected by the COVID-19 outbreak. Many projects were affected by this. For the first time since the war began the Bible Society book shop had to close. This was especially sad, as even through the hardest times the book shop never closed.
However, the warehouse in Aleppo has been able to be open and is more active than usual. Our colleague wrote to us and told us that it is “like a beehive”. The international highway is open again and they are able to deliver Bibles and Scripture all over Syria. They have been able to reach many new areas which before the they could not go to. With the help of local churches, they have been able to provide Bibles, Scripture and resources two over 18,000 people over the first few months of 2020.
Christianity is growing in Syria and many people are turning to Christ. Praise God that even in such difficult circumstances his word stands true and is a source of comfort.
This month your donation will go towards providing Scripture to people in Syria.
