Because of your support, we were able to send financial assistance to those who have needed it most. We have sent emails in the past keeping everyone up-to-date on what is happening in Lebanon and the financial crisis that is affecting millions of Lebanese families as they strive to make ends meet.
Between significant pay cuts, job losses, diminishing worth of the Lebanese lira, and increase of prices for basic goods, most Lebanese are struggling.
“But if anyone has the world’s goods and sees his brother in need, yet closes his heart against him, how does God’s love abide in him?”
– 1 John 3:17
It burdens our hearts to see those around the world and specifically in our churches and communities who are currently going without. Many of these families are even struggling to purchase food for their families to eat.
But God is faithful and has provided opportunities to support those who are in need.

The Beirut Blast

Beirut Blast Damage

Since the Beirut blast that occurred in August 2020 caused many to lose so much, there has been a great need among the Lebanese. The donations given to assist those in these areas were able to help repair 2 Christian families’ homes and provide a month’s worth of supplies for over 30 families!

The Sri Lankan Church

The Sri Lankan church has always been involved in the needs of their community. They have used the funds donated to them to feed 400 people who were in need of assistance. They took this opportunity to share the Gospel with those 400 people, resulting in 15 joining their church and 8 people being baptized!
Additionally, they were able to repair their facilities and replace some equipment that had been damaged.

Northern Lebanon


Northern Lebanon is also having plenty of economic problems as well. A few of the families who lead a church we helped start in 2018 have been running out of provisions so supplies have been sent to them as well as they navigate the difficulties of the plummeting economy.


“We lost our home after the explosion in Beirut. My husband and I have been staying with my parents for a couple of weeks then my husband’s parents for a couple of weeks. Thankfully we have family, but we lost so much. And because of the economic crisis, we have had trouble getting what we need for our family. But 10/40 Hope was able to provide us with vouchers for the supermarket. These vouchers gave us a chance to get food for our family and diapers for our children.”

Our Heart

We know that the effects of darkness will be around us until Jesus returns. But seeing the Church serve their neighbors and be a light to their communities fills us with so much gratitude and joy. The Church celebrates the fact that Jesus came into a broken world to bring healing to the wounded, to bring light into darkness, ultimately to set us free from sin. There will be a day when these pains will be no more. And until then, we follow Jesus’ commandment:
“A new commandment I give to you, that you love one another: just as I have loved you, you also are to love one another. By this all people will know that you are my disciples, if you have love for one another.”
– John 13:34-35

Thank You

It is because of the generosity of our donors that 10/40 Hope is able to support the Church in Lebanon and the greater 10/40 window. Thank you so much for helping every nation hope in Christ.
