The Number of Disciples Increased Rapidly

“So the word of God spread. The number of disciples .. increased rapidly…”(Acts 6:7)

As the Lord servants our mission is to plant the seed, the Word of God, in people. Since we started the Bible study sessions for Refugees women in Kfarshima, Lebanon, and the number of disciples is increasing. We started with 12 women and now they become over 60 women at one time in one room that wouldn’t fit such a number. Therefore we divided the class into two groups. These refugees women fled war, escaped the cruelty, death, and insecurity. Being in a Bible study sessions where they learn about how great Gods’ love is and how great His humbleness, and His mercy shown through the Cross, help them understand what the true God is. Also MELM shows Christian love by recognizing their needs and supports them with food packages and diapers for children.

A New Bible Study Class for Non-Christians in Zahle

“And teaching them to observe all things that I have commanded you…” (Matthew 28:20)

 Our purpose in life as Christians and as Lord’s servants is to make disciples for Jesus and teach them to observe and obey his commandments.

We thank our Lord Jesus that He opened a new door to a new Bible study courses. This week we started the “Life of Christ” course for non- Christian Syrian refugee women in a new area in Zahle, Bikaa. MELM has been supporting these refugees with food packages for several times in which it opened the door for us to speak about Jesus and to start a Bible Study sessions with them. The women were excited about the course and they are willing to commit to it. We pray that the Lord work in their lives and hearts so they submit to Him everything.

Medical Ministry for Refugees

“… I was sick and you looked after me, I was in prison and you came to visit me.” (Matthew 25:36)

Helping the sick is one of our Lord Jesus recommendations; therefore, MELM helped an American medical team mission with translation from English language to Arabic and vice versa, during the medical campaign that was held for refugees in two areas, Byblos, and shouf, Lebanon.

There were internal medicine doctors, family doctors, dentists, eyes examination and glasses that fit every need, in addition to a pharmacy full of drugs and free of charge. Hundreds of refugees’ families, adults and kids, came to find solutions to their health problems. The refugees are facing infections, diseases, many other serious health problems especially among kids.

The medical mission stayed a week long and many refugees were examined and given the right medication for their health case, and some other special cases were transferred to a medical center.
