February 2020 - Celebrate Love!

Greetings to you in the Name of our precious Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. This month, on February 14th, we celebrate love with Valentine's Day! Let us not only celebrate the love we have with our spouse and family members, but also God's love. It is this love that will cause the unsaved to know that we are His disciples and be attracted to our message (John 13:35). We are to be markedly different from the rest of the world because of our love for others and our love should be the basis of everything we do.

 

One day as I was travelling through one of the busiest airports in the world, I heard a loud but distant voice calling to me, saying, "Nizar Shaheen, I love you!" Much to my surprise, it was from one of the securities workers. I learned that she is an Algerian lady who watches our programs regularly and she told me, "When you talk about the love of Jesus and His superiority, I am drawn to believe and accept him."

 

It is interesting that in Islam there are 99 names for God, but not one denotes that God is love. Our Lord Jesus is the embodiment of God's love. He came to show the world how much God loves us! Thank you Lord for your love! We, as His followers, are to model Him. In John's first epistle we read: "By this we know love, because He laid down his life for us. And we also ought to lay down our lives for the brethren. But whoever has this world's goods, and sees his brother in need, and shuts up his hearts from him, how does the love of God abide in him? My little children, let us not love in word or in tongue, but in deed and in truth."(1 John 3:16-18)

 

One way we show our love is to support with compassion the needy, displaced people in Syria. I am so thankful to our ministry supporters who have given for this cause over the past year. Now, with the new troubles in that region and the sub-zero temperatures, our workers on the ground have contacted me with another great need for support. Many displaced families are in dire situations and we want to raise $80 per family. Our co-workers are preparing a care bag of food and a coupon to obtain heating fuel. We have already committed to help as many families as we are able and the bags are now being prepared (pictures posted below). Will you donate today toward this humanitarian aid? Please call our office or click on the donate link below and write in the memo "Mission Aid."

 

With prayers of blessing upon you,

 

Nizar Shaheen
