"You are the light of the world. A town built on a hill cannot be hidden." (Matthew 5:14)
Pastor Abdalla from Aleppo, Syria, and his church have embodied the words of Jesus, bravely choosing to stay behind despite the chaos to be a beacon of light in the darkness. And, thanks to the incredible response to Open Doors' Syria Christmas appeal, they have been empowered to do just that, and are continuing to bring hope, light and life to their community.
