Jordan project to help traumatised refugees flourishes online during pandemic

Bible Society of Jordan has completed its first online trauma healing group, which shows that despite the challenges facing many Bible Societies during the coronavirus pandemic, new God-given opportunities are also being grasped.

‘I am filled with gratitude and joy as I share with you, dear ones, the news of the completion of our first online trauma healing group!’ said Haya, Project Co-ordinator at Bible Society of Jordan.

‘What a privilege it is to be living in an age where we are not bound by a lockdown or curfew, but are able to reach the people of our communities and connect and share with them through technology,’ she added.

Haya’s message echoed that of other Bible Societies, such as in Egypt and in the Holy Land, that said they were embracing technology and social media to turn the time of lockdown into one of growth and outreach. 

‘It’s a time where we are exploring every way possible to minister and serve the people,‘ Haya said of the work in Jordan, which helps Syrian, Iraqi and other refugees and locals find healing through the word of God.

‘I know this is just the beginning for us. I pray for an end to this pandemic in the world but meanwhile, let us enjoy watching God work in his ways. Blessings to all of you!’

Please pray for Bible Society of Jordan and the great work that is being done to help those traumatised by war in the region. This work would not be possible if it wasn’t for the kind donations of people like you.

Also please pray for Bible Societies worldwide as they investigate new ways of continuing Bible mission during the pandemic. Some are struggling and are completely reliant on your contributions and prayers.

Thank you for your continued support for the worldwide Bible mission. We might be living in a time of uncertainty but one thing we know is that our God is unchangeable in his faithfulness.
