JORDAN TRIPS

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 of 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. Together, we will work to provide 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, staff, and workers in Amman. We will participate in church services and multiple women's, men's, and youth events.  

We will also visit a few Biblical sites during our time in Jordan. Possible places include Amman Citadel, Roman Amphitheater, Mt. Nebo, Dead Sea, and the place where Jesus was baptized 2,000 years ago.
