The Refugee Plight
Over the last number of years around one million refugees from Syria and Iraq have crossed their home borders into the safe-haven country of Jordan. Running from poverty, war, violence, and persecution - only to be met by additional hardships of searching for work, education for their children, providing the basic needs of their families, and missing loved ones.
Despite the war torn countries they have fled from, the refugees miss their homes and long for the day that their home country would have peace and not war.
Be a part of Capturing Hearts through Compassionate Help & Aid to the Refugees of Jordan!
What Will We Do?
Spend your week getting to know refugees from Iraq and Syria. Together we will work to provide for their basic needs, visit their homes 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.
We will spend time encouraging our partners on the ground, as well as other staff and workers there. We will participate in church services as well as multiple women's, men's, youth events.
Unfortunately, due to current restrictions, we will not be able to visit one of the refugee camps.
We will also visit a few Biblical sites during our time in Jordan. Possible places include Amman Citadel, Mt. Nebo, Dead Sea and the place where Jesus was baptized 2,000 years ago.
Your Safety Is Our Priority
We will stay at the local church where our GPPD serve and travel to and from locations by van or taxi. Safety is one of our top priorities. Our workers on the ground know and understand the country and culture very well. They will always have your best interest in mind. Translators will be available when needed.
