Since the 2011 outbreak of civil war in Syria, hundreds of thousands have fled to neighboring countries, including Jordan.
Many refugees have had the opportunity to hear the gospel during their displacement, and a significant number of Syrians have become followers of Christ through the witness of Jordanian Christians. Some Syrian refugees now worry that the government of Jordan is planning to force them to return to Syria. “I could be killed at the border,” said one Syrian Christian. Front-line workers request prayer for wisdom as they counsel Syrian refugees and for increased opportunities to share the gospel and provide biblical discipleship. “There is a huge opening among the hearts of Syrians,” said a front-line worker. “But they need more discipleship and more strengthening in their faith.”
