The Beirut Blast
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
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.”
“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
