Prayer request from our team in Aleppo
Our team in Aleppo are still operating despite the huge conflict in the city, which is under siege.
Many people, both Christians and Muslims, come to the shop to buy Bibles and ask what the Bible has to say about the suffering they face. There is huge uncertainty as conflict continues and many live in fear of what tomorrow may bring.
Please pray for:
- peace and hope amid increasingly heavy shelling and uncertainty
- protection during a cold winter without water, electricity or fuel
- for the arrival of Bibles on their way from Lebanon.
Thank you for joining us in prayer. If you'd like to make your prayers 'visible' to encourage others, please post a prayer on our prayer tree.
Harry Lighton, from Portsmouth, has won Pitch film competition. Bible Society is one of the main sponsors of the competition which asks film makers to come up with a short film idea based on a Bible story character or theme. Ten finalists pitched their ideas to a panel of film industry experts at the Pinewood Film Studios this weekend (15 and 16 January).
In December, we asked you to pray for our team member in Aleppo, who have been faithfully serving the people of Syria despite constant danger. Thanks for your prayers! We're happy to say we have good news from Syria.
There’s an increasing thirst for Scriptures in Syria, despite the ongoing crisis. You can help meet the demand.
