Church in Syria Threatened for Relief Distribution

One of the churches in war-torn Syria that partners with Open Doors USA to distribute relief items to needy and displaced people has been threatened by extremists because of its "missionary" activities. The church distributes food and other supplies to Christians, Muslims and others in need, as well as telling the people about the love of Jesus and offering them a New Testament if they ask. Many Muslims are interested in listening and some even ask for a New Testament. This hasn't gone unnoticed with the extremists, who threatened to attack the church. Open Doors writes: "Pray that the Lord will protect the church and its members so relief supplies and the Gospel can go out to people in the area. Also pray for peace in a country where an estimated 100,000 people have been killed and millions displaced in continuing civil war violence."
