JORDAN TRIPS

 

March 9-19,  2023

Over the last number of years about one million refugees from Syria and Iraq have crossed their home borders into the safe-haven country of Jordan. They ran from poverty, war, violence, and persecution only to be met by additional hardships of searching for work, education for their children, providing basic needs for their families, and missing loved ones. Despite the difficulities in the war torn countries from which they fled, many refugees miss their homes and long once again to enjoy peace and stability there. You can make a difference by capturing hearts through compassionate help for the refugees residing in Jordan!

WHAT WILL WE DO? 

Approximately 85% of refugees in Jordan live in an urban setting. The vast majority of them are in the capital city of Amman. We will spend our week getting to know refugees from Iraq and Syria and show them God's eternal love. As you listen to the stories of these courageous families, you will be compelled to do whatever it takes to bring them help and hope. 
  • Spend time encouraging our partners on the ground, staff, and workers in Amman
  • Participate in church services and multiple women's, men's, and youth events
  • Visit the homes of refugees to share tea, provide a safe place for them to share their stories, and bring food or other family necessities
  • Visit a few historical sites (possible sites include Amman Citadel, Roman Amphitheater, Mt. Nebo, the Dead Sea, or the location where Jesus was baptized)

As always, your safety is our priority. Our partners on the ground know and understand the language, country, and culture. They will always have your best interest in mind. We travel to and from locations by van or taxi as a group. Translators are available when needed.
