Happy Christmas from Open Doors!

18 December 2018

"The gifts you sent... are a fragrant offering, an acceptable sacrifice, pleasing to God. And my God will meet all your needs according to the riches of his glory in Christ Jesus." (Philippians 4:18-19) 

Thank you so much for everything you've done to support our persecuted family this year. Every gift, prayer and action makes a difference for our brothers and sisters in Christ, and enables them not only to survive but to build God's kingdom where they are, even in the darkest places. 

As a way of saying thank you, please enjoy this beautiful rendition of Silent Night, performed by Josh Gauton, with Karen Woodley and members of St Luke's Gas Street Church Christmas Choir, which shows some of the amazing ways your support is helping the church in Syria to keep hope alive. 

You’ll see some of Open Doors local partners in Syria in this video, including Pastor Abdalla and Ghassan. Churches like theirs are feeding 12,000 families every month, thanks to your incredible support and prayers. If you haven’t already, you can give to support their vital work – Every £26 could provide a monthly emergency relief pack for a family in Syria.

May you have a very blessed and happy Christmas and a wonderful New Year!
