Agriculture project in Syria gives farmers a new hopeJanuary 13, 2018
“I am from a large city in Syria where fighting became quite violent and I had to flee to Lebanon in 2013. Now, I teach Arabic to 120 Syrian refugee children aged 6-11.
When I started teaching at one of the church learning centers in Lebanon, I soon realized that some of the children in my classes were from the same families that killed my relatives. I was speechless, taken back. But after all, they are just children, they didn’t do anything, why would I have anger in my heart toward them? Before the Syrian conflict we were just neighbors.
I want to thank the church here because they have welcomed me. They have helped me and been like a family to me. I don’t feel like a refugee in the church, but like I’m important, like I’m part of this church.”
