We gathered in the prayer room for teaching and prayer. Our focus became the concerns for the Syrian refugees and how Canadians would respond to the government's decision
to bring 25,000 people here by the end of this year.
"Oh God,what can we do to help?"
Within thirty minutes, three South Korean women from New Jersey arrived at our door with a young woman who worked at the Jesus of Nazareth Church in Bab-touma, Damascus for fourteen years. Originally from Ethiopia, Christin had to leave her home after her conversion and so she went to Syria.
The circumstances in Syria were worsening for her and the believers encouraged her to leave for her own safety.
During her service in Syria she met a Korean missionary from the East Gate Prayer House in New Jersey, which is the connection that brought the women here to see how she was faring in Canada.
A Korean believer from Toronto whom Christin had met gave her a little book titled, We Have A Voice. Christin lived in the prayer house in Damascus and longed to find one here. She asked her friends to bring her to NHOP. She was sponsored by an Ethiopian Church in Ottawa for one year and now she resides at Nhop.
We are newly challenged to pray for our brothers and sisters in Syria and elsewhere and we are so thankful that Canada is encouraging families and Churches to participate in the effort to provide a new start in life here.
