Middle Eastern refugees in the millions are facing a very cold season ahead. Winter in this part of the world extends well into March with January and February experiencing fierce temperature drops. Having fled the upheaval in their countries—many with only the clothes on their backs—refugees desperately need heaters for winter now. Whole families are living during the coldest time of the year in basements, garages, empty shops, makeshift shelters and single rooms.

An eyewitness report:

Mahmud lives in the city with his three daughters. With no money and no healthy food, his daughters help him collect cans from the garbage to sell and buy food. He is very poor and sick, and he can't work. His wife died of cancer. For Mahmud it seems there is no hope-only tears and sorrow.  

I heard about Mahmud from my friend. We went to see him in the street where he lives and we gave him a heater and food. Imagine how the look on his face changed. Tears filled his eyes. We told him we are from the church and shared with him about the love of Jesus. He told us,
 "Many people see me in the street and I didn't find sympathy or love. Many of them closed their car windows for fear of me when I walked beside them. But you have filled our hearts with joy."

Aid workers have said, "It’s not uncommon to hear a refugee say, 'Only the Christians are helping us.'"

With the help of partners like you, Jesus Film Project can give these families special heating and cooking units to keep their “homes” warm and provide hot meals. Local churches and relief agencies such as Cru's Humanitarian ministry (UntoTM, formerly known as GAiN) are providing mattresses, blankets, and cooking utensils like pots and pans.

Please help meet refugees’ urgent need of heat for their homes right now. Your heartfelt gift of $40 will supply a heater, a cooking plate, a propane canister and the opportunity to experience the love of Jesus. Will you please prayerfully consider helping one or more families today? Any-sized gift will make a difference; give as God enables you.  

Your gift will help meet the most essential physical needs of a family torn by war, (Matthew 25:35-36), and also help open the doors to meet spiritual needs. Thank you for caring and for helping Middle Eastern refugees tangibly receive the love of Christ.
