In 2019, Lebanon's once healthy economy was dismantled due to a series of political issues that unfolded right before the onset of the COVID pandemic. It is estimated that the currency in Lebanon has lost 95% of it's value. For the average person, that means that an average wage of $900 per month is now worth less than $50. The demand for goods and the cost for essentials is sky-high, but securing even the most basic of needs extremely difficult.

The disturbance in the Lebanon has caused many other countries in the region to suffer similar economic distress and many brothers and sisters are experiencing hardships.

When we think about resilience we think about Nour. Not only does she love Jesus, but Nour was literally willing to die for Him.

She escaped Syria when her parents found out that she does not accept her inherited religion and believed instead in God and savior Jesus Christ. She came to Lebanon, met her husband and had 2 boys, while still searching from church to church for the body of Christ that she believed in and read about in the scriptures.

Things took a turn in Nour's life when one of her boys was diagnosed with autism. It was a difficult to accept, but the greatness of our Lord, is found in trials. Nour met one of our church members through our special needs ministry and got baptized.

Today, Nour and her family are in need of your financial support since they are going through really tough times with all the bills adding up and the situation getting worse.

Please note that we cannot post a picture of Nour for safety reasons.
