Liena and her family turned down offers of asylum in Western countries after civil war broke out in Syria. They knew the cost that might be required, but they chose to remain as witnesses to their Muslim neighbors and as an encouragement to other Christians.
Liena was a dedicated Christian, faithful wife and mother of two. In her prayers, she asked God to use her to reach more people. And then God asked her to make one more commitment.
Watch the dramatic testimony of Liena’s Prayer, as she struggles with the difficult decision of how much she can offer God.
You may never pray the same again.

As the fighting continues in Syria, front-line workers are sharing Outreach Packs with Syrian refugees to demonstrate Christ’s love for them. VOM has distributed similar packs to persecuted Christians for years. The packs, which are filled by Christian families in the United States, contain practical items like shirts, socks, bedding and toiletries.
Your $7 donation covers VOM’s shipping and distribution costs, and you are responsible for paying the cost of shipping the filled packs back to VOM. Detailed instructions, a list of items and a shipping label are included with the pack that you will receive from VOM.
Order multiple packs and make it a group event. Watch Liena’s Prayer, pray for Syria and those who will receive the packs, and then send some practical relief that will help Syrian Christians share Christ. (Free shipping on Syrian Outreach Packs.)
