“These kids haven’t laughed in so long. You don’t know how happy it makes me feel to hear them filled with such happiness!” beamed a volunteer pastor in Kessab, Syria.
Because fear and suffering has snatched the joys of childhood from most kids caught in the midst of the Syrian war, the Grain of Wheat team travels throughout this dangerous country to hold special children’s performances. As kids are introduced to Jesus, the Prince of Peace, their hearts are reawakened to a true JOY that is greater than any devastating circumstance they face.
Even today, the JOY of that special day glows in the children’s eyes and inundates their heart as they now know the One who will hold them safe in His arms forever.
What a great privilege it is to be the messenger of such unspeakable JOY to kids together with you!
