It’s time to expand the Middle East Laundromat Ministry!
Millions of displaced families in the Middle East continue to struggle for survival in places where they are considered “outsiders”. It’s been 2 1/2 years since Women for JESUS, with your help, built a new laundromat to serve refugee families and we’re thrilled to let you know how God has blessed this ministry and opened doors to expand it to other cities in the Middle East.
In November, a few key investors were able to personally visit the laundromat and experience for themselves its significance for the surrounding refugee community. In fact, each investor returned home with a strong desire to give even more–completely convinced their gifts have yielded lasting fruit for God’s Kingdom.
And it gets even better—the impact of the laundromat ministry has been so great that God has opened doors for new laundromats to service refugees in other cities in the Middle East. In fact a second laundromat, in a different city, has just been completed.
We certainly have a lot to celebrate together—including these highlights!
- 150 refugee families use the laundromat regularly.
- Housed in a church, the laundromat opens door for relationships and ministry.
- Isolated and displaced women are learning about their value to God through our our evangelistic films and other resources.
- Refugee children watch The Story of Jesus for Children and attend classes at the church’s school.
- Discipleship groups have formed for women to learn about the Bible and be ministered to on a deeper level.
- Women can bring family members to periodic evening meetings to see one of Jesus Film Project’s evangelistic films and to receive food and basic supplies.
- Entire families are being reached as local believers extend help and love.
- This ministry of compassion is drawing hearts closer to Jesus and is an important bridge into the refugee community.
God’s heart for the vulnerable is clear in Scripture, and He’s calling His church to help. That’s the beauty of the laundromat ministry! It meets practical needs and opens doors for local believers to minister to entire families, in the name of Jesus. And it’s working so well that we’ve been asked to help build 3 more laundromats in 2017.
God’s heart is for all peoples and He continues to work in miraculous ways to spread the Good News of Jesus! As you ponder the realities of what knowing Christ has meant for you personally, would you consider a generous gift for the laundromat ministry?
Your gift will be combined with others and used specifically to expand the laundromat ministry during 2017.
Let’s keep spreading hope together!
