Let your mouth be open for those who have no voice, in the cause of those who are ready for death. – Proverbs 31:8
We live in a broken world. We watch movies and television shows that desensitize us to the horrors of the world. Every day the news is filled with images that we would just like to forget. We ignore it. If we pretend it’s not there, it will go away, right?
Dear friends, our brothers, and sisters are fleeing for their lives in Iraq and Syria. They have been made voiceless in their distress. But now we will be their voice. We will speak for the refugees fleeing the violence. We need your support to love our persecuted brothers and sisters.
We can’t sweep these atrocities under the rug. We have to do something. We have to be their voice. We have to show them that God hears their silent screams to Him. We have to be the hands and feet of the Body.
But what can I do? I feel so helpless.
