Dear Muslim and Christian friends,

I don’t travel overseas like I used to but recently I was blessed to go to Lebanon. I love the Middle East and have been there many times but I had never been to this amazing and beautiful country.

You have to love Lebanese – and Syrian – food!

You have to love Lebanese sights!

The beautiful view of the Mediterranean Sea. . .

I visited a church and I visited a mosque in Beirut.

But really, I came to Lebanon to see. . .the refugees.

It was a great blessing to walk in the poorer neighborhoods of Beirut where many Syrian refugees live.

It was good to gain a view from a rooftop in that poor neighborhood of an old Orthodox church and in the other direction. . .a mosque.

Think of all the refugees who live in this neighborhood and in camps all over Lebanon. Desperate, hurting people. Heartbroken over losing family members, homes, jobs – all that was familiar and good.

So stretch out your hands and pray for Lebanon. 2 million Syrian refugees are there.

I loved the food, the sights, but mostly. . .I loved the refugees.
