Syria (MNN) ― The civil war in Syria continues to claim lives.
More than 30,000 have already died in the conflict. Now, with the rule
of law unbridled, innocent Christians are becoming victims as radicals
take advantage of the situation.

The Middle East Director of Christian Aid Mission
says marauding bands of militants are responsible. “They’re not
necessarily Syrians, but they’re very radical Muslims, and their goal is
to eradicate Christians. They believe it’s an abomination to have
Christians within Syria.”

We are not identifying this director for security reasons, but he tells
us a Christian Aid-supported worker was a victim. “There was a band of
militia that came through and told all of the people to get out; then,
they went ahead and killed the pastor and his family. So there [are]
quite a few now–I think there are 11 [Christians]–who have been killed
in that one area from that ministry that we help.”

Why has the rule of law disappeared from Syria? The director says, “All
of the typical security that you would have in the country is trying to
protect the country. They’re not worried about providing police
protection for the little communities around, and so the people are all

That’s forcing many Syrians to flee into Lebanon, Jordan, and Turkey.
The ministry directory is particularly concerned about 32 Christian
families who escaped this recent violence, who are frightened for their
lives. “The goal is to try to get them out. Once they get into Lebanon,
because they’re close to the border of Lebanon, then they need to be
taken care of.” Funding is need to help these believers.

The ministry director says non-Christians are also in need. Christian
Aid-supported churches are reaching out with food, shelter, clothing,
and the Gospel. “They’ve had many, many Muslims who have become
Christians and there’s still an opportunity to give out Gospel DVDs and
New Testaments to the refugees. There’s great openness among those

Support is also needed for to support Christian schools that have been established for the children of refugee families.

Prayer is also important: not just for the victims, but for those
responsible. “You look at the Apostle Paul: he was the worst of sinners
and was a persecutor of the church. And God reached his heart! We need
to be praying for these radicals that God would touch their hearts and
that they would come to know Christ.”
