Saturday 16

Soubhi is a Christian living in Aleppo, the Syrian city which has been most devastated in the civil war. When his apartment was shelled, he lost his nose and sustained a fractured skull and arm. His wife Gina lost her eyes, eyelids and face, leaving nothing but burnt flesh. Their son was killed. Soubhi and Gina are amongst the recipients of 150,000 food parcels or similar aid provided by Barnabas Fund for Syrian Christians in one year. Ask that our all-powerful God may enable them to rejoice their sufferings, clinging to His promise that suffering leads to hope does not disappoint us because He has poured out His love into our hearts by the Holy Spirit (Romans 5:3-5)
