Here in Lebanon there has been much talk recently, both in the media and in the political sectors, about the need to force Syrian refugees to return to their homeland. The Lebanese army, stating security concerns, has issued an eviction notice for 40,000 Syrians to leave their tent settlements in the Bekaa Valley in a week’s time.

People Are Our Most Appreciable Asset

We understand that this statement may not be the norm in faith-based organizations.  Nevertheless, it is a true statement in business and, as a faith-based organization, most of what a faith-based organization possesses goes down in value. Facilities deteriorate, equipment becomes out of date, supplies get used up, etc. - you get the picture. What asset has the greatest potential for actually going up in value? People! People are of tremendous value to God; after…

ARE SYRIANS HEADED BACK TO SYRIA?

Network news is reporting that Syrians living in Lebanon are returning home to Syria. While the news makes this sound like hundreds or even thousands have returned the fact is that very few have returned. Not enough to make a difference in Lebanon.

INSURGENCE OF HOPE

This is a time of both unparalleled need and an unprecedented opportunity. There is no one organization that bears the entire responsibility alone. Heart for Lebanon’s response as a faith-based organization is: We are doing for 3,000 what we wish we could do for 6,000. The crisis around the Syrian civil war has shaken our conscience with images of innocent men, women, and children suffering from the devastation within their own country, while living and…

THE VALUE OF RECYCLED LIVES

At Heart for Lebanon, our Health Awareness Program teaches students important, practical, personal, and community health skills. However, these programs extend much further by affirming both Biblical character values and transformation in Jesus Christ. For example, students recently participated in a recycling project that taught the Biblical value of stewardship. In class, they learned about how much trash each person produces a day, they multiplied by the number of days in a year and the…

MOTHERS SAY IT BEST

Mothers in all cultures are most proud when their children succeed. A mother of four students in our H.O.P.E. Educational Program was very proud of her children’s grades and thanked every teacher for his/her care. She said “my kids are obsessed with studying, when they first come home after school, they eat and directly go to study. I have never seen them so committed, they have never been absent from school since the beginning of…

VISION TRIP

This is a guest blog written by Karen Springs of Orphan’s Promise on her first Vision Trip with Heart for Lebanon. From the third-row pew, I sit taking in the scene. A children’s choir gathering on risers in the front of the church. A collection of pre-teen girls fixing their hair as they prepare to play the hand bells, and a group of grade schoolers practicing their rendition of ‘Twinkle Twinkle Little Star’ on their…

THE HOPE OF EASTER

When life doesn’t give you the answer of hope, you can find the answer in Jesus Christ’s resurrection. If you look at the plight of refugees in Lebanon, strictly from politics or the humanitarian side, there is little to no hope. Where there is no hope people will soon perish. Where there is no hope, life becomes dark, without energy, little desire to make life better; simply put, there is no life. This is fertile…
