A 30-day ceasefire in the ongoing Syrian conflict was negotiated by the United Nations on the weekend to allow aid agencies to assist the civilian population. However, a new ground attack and aerial bombings took place the next day east of the capital city of Damascus. Pray for those who were injured as a result, as well as those who live within the conflict zone. Pray also for our partner, the Lebanese Society for Educational and Social Development, and their outreach ministries to the refugee population in Lebanon. May they continue be a powerful witness to the Gospel of Jesus, sharing peace and demonstrating love for those fleeing the devastations of war.
