As War Rages, Syrians Find Hope on Radio

The Syrian people are plunged in civil war, and you’re hearing about it daily as bombing strikes are contemplated in retaliation for chemical weapons attacks on civilians.

Now a radio program launched this summer is providing a forum for Christians and non-Christians to tell their stories amid the violence and deprivation. They are offering and receiving advice and encouragement on the TWR broadcast of Hope for Syria.

Much like Joseph told his brothers as they groveled before him in ancient Egypt, God can bring good out of these circumstances despite the obvious horrors inherent in the bitter war and religious strife. Through Hope in Syria, says TWR’s Arabic Ministry director, “the Lord strengthens the faith of those who are experiencing hunger and seeing their kids suffer.”
