Today begins the seventh year of the Syrian refugee crisis.
In 2013, when the crisis was relatively young, our president Rich Stearns met 10-year-old Haya in Jordan. The poem and letter she read to him that day became a pivotal moment in his life: “Do you ever think of the children of Syria?”
Hear from Rich about the impact of that moment, and three and a half years later, join us in reconnecting with Haya.
How does God get your attention about something that matters?
For me, God tends to use people, specifically children, to shake me out of complacency. One child’s story can simplify a complicated crisis and bring into sharp focus what’s most important. Statistics and rhetoric fall away when I’m staring into the face of a suffering child. All I want to do is find a way to help.
