Nearly a decade of war and brutality have made the once prosperous nation of Syria one of the poorest. While many fled the carnage or died, the vulnerable remain. Through these years, a faithful band of Christians have not only survived but also reached out to care for families and children around them. They have shared the little food they have. They have provided clothing and blankets. And they have opened their churches to bring the message of hope in Jesus. Hundreds have responded. We have opportunity to come alongside them.
A gift of $30 can be stretched to keep a family alive for over two weeks. After clicking the button below, please select "Syria Donations" in the giving designation dropdown.
Africa is home to numerous tribal groups still largely unreached with the Gospel. Four prominent people groups live in southeast Kenya. One of our ministry partners, Medical Ambassadors-East Africa, has an upcoming opportunity to train 35 leaders to the task of bringing both the message of Jesus and needed community development to the people. This opportunity positions you to help these leaders advance this work through three days of training and planning. While our African friends have raised a substantial amount of the funding, the need remains.
Your gift of any amount would help contribute to the $3,200 still needed. After clicking the button below, please select "Eastern Team Donations" in the giving designation dropdown.

Even in the midst of COVID-19, the ITI has focused on continuing the training via Zoom. Our Latin America team, for example, uses six Zoom accounts utilized by six different countries with classes regularly "meeting" six nights a week. In the Middle East, we have seen pastoral leaders from new countries such as Turkey joining the virtual ITI classes. We hope to expand training in other countries.
