Praying for Muslims: Ramadan - Week 3  Andy Freeman  17th Jul

Each week during the season of Ramadan we’re posting an article to help you reflect on this global religious event.  

Did you know that Muslim believers are in a majority in around 49 countries globally right now. The population of believers is always hard to gauge but 1.6 billion wouldn’t be far off. This religion is a big part of the world, and I suspect, you have noticed it’s a big part of the news. Not many headlines or bulletins go by now without a mention of Islam.

Miracles in Syrian Refugee Camps  Rebecca Rubanik  11th Jul

Lebanon. A country so small, yet so large in many ways.

The 24-7 Lebanon mission team have been here for 5 days now, and it’s safe to say that we have all fallen in love with this place. It’s hard to imagine that a country deeply hurt and damaged by conflict could make 7 Brits and Americans feel so welcome and at home.

Our time has been shared between visiting the refugee camps in the Bekaa Valley and embarking on prayer tours around Beirut and surrounding areas. Wherever we have gone, people have been so welcoming. Whether we encounter a Lebanese Christian or a Syrian Muslim in the camps, we’ve been welcomed with open arms. One thing that has been noticeable, is how spiritually open and hungry people are here. Every time we’ve offered to pray, the invite has been accepted. Then the Holy Spirit seems to do something wonderful by catalysing a chain reaction….more and more people pour in asking for prayer. Neighbours will run to the next tent in the camp searching for that person who’s sick. Lebanon is looking for an encounter.
