Starting Holistic Ministry in North Lebanon

“Therefore, as we have opportunity, let us do good to all people, especially to those who belong to the family of believers.” (Galatians 6:10)

The Bible teaches us that we have to do good to all people, whether they are Christians or non-Christians, whether they are enemies, or family. Jesus said:” In the same way, let your light shine before others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your Father in heaven.” (Matthew 5:16)

There is time when we have to do good because our Lord commands us to. We have to do good without expectations. Our Christian love has to be unconditional. We are obeying Jesus when we go search for the people who are in need and help them.

MELM is hitting new grounds finding where the refugee’s camps are, knocking their door to give them a hand of help through food packages. MELM team visited many camps in north Lebanon occupied by conservative Muslim refugees from Syria. We distributed for them the food packages, showing them the love of Christ even though they think that Christians are infidels. But that is the unconditional love Jesus teaches us about, He said : “…do good to those who hate you,  bless those who curse you, pray for those who mistreat you. (Luke 6: 27-28)

Therefore we find them welcoming us, smiling for us, thanking us for the food packages and for the care we showed.
