Refugee Aid through local Arab churches
We are serving and partnering with several local Jordanian churches in and around Amman. There are around 1.3 million Syrian refugees in Jordan as well as tens of thousands of Iraqi refugees that have fled cities ISIS has taken over in Iraq. Many of the Iraqis are Christian.
Local Arab teams visit the refugees daily, distributing aid as needed. The local churches also do weekly and monthly events for the refugees such as children’s programs, trauma counseling, and food box distribution, medical and dental clinics.
Community Center and School – The churches have begun community centers and schools for the preschool and kindergarten age kids. Some other events that take place are; teaching English, sewing machine project to help refugees earn money, life skills training, women’s center, counseling.
Safe Houses – The churches provide, as they are able, safe houses for persecuted Christians, often times their lives are in danger.
Medical and Dental Teams in and through local Arab churches
Spiritual Care Link facilitates Medical and Dental teams to go and serve with and through local Arab churches in the Middle East. In October of 2015 17 medical professionals served in two churches in Amman. Over 1000 refugees received medical care. We partner with the Christian Medical and Dental Association, CMDA.
The next outreach is planed for November 2016.
Sending Arab teams to unreached Arab countries to make Disciples
Teams have been sent to the Arabian Peninsula and Turkey to reach those who have never been told about how to live a life of faith in Jesus Christ. This has strengthened the resolve of Arab Believers and the Arab church to be fully committed making disciples among their people.
Short Term Teams to serve along side our Arab Brethren
Spiritual Care Link serves local Arab churches in the Middle East by sending short terms teams to help them. Some of the ways short term teams aid our Arab Brethren; teaching English, medical and dental aid, counseling, consulting, and job training.
Short Term Teams also go to see and get a vision of the ministries of the churches. Teams visit with the churches, pray with and for our Arab churches and brethren, and do ministry visits with the churches. This is a huge encouragement to our Arab brethren.
If you, a group or your church would like to come and see what is happening for God’s glory, please contact us. Our Arab brethren would love to meet and fellowship with you.
