Kids’ club brings love

A kids’ club for local Arab children as well as Syrian Muslim refugee children started at a local church, with (initially) ten Syrian children. Within two months it grew rapidly to 66. OM team member ‘George’ saw that a number of the refugee children were unable to read or write and began teaching them literacy skills.

Afterwards, some of the children encouraged their parents to go to the church despite some of the adults’ objections. ‘These are great people and they talk about Jesus the Messiah,’ they said. A mother and her children were deeply touched by the teaching and outpouring of love they found at the church. Spurred on by what they were learning, they said: ‘We want to follow Jesus.’
