Replanting What ISIS Destroyed

[237] prayers in [19] nations have been posted for Aaron and Khalil Hassan.

Aaron and Khalil Hassan are two brothers who fled to Lebanon after the self-proclaimed Islamic State (ISIS) chased them from their apricot farm in 2013. While in Lebanon, the brothers heard the gospel and placed their faith in Christ. When they returned to Syria, they found their farms pillaged; ISIS had chopped down all the apricot trees and used them for firewood. Moreover, their farmland borrowed water from wells on neighboring properties, and when those neighbors discovered Aaron and Khalil's newfound faith in Christ, the neighbors cut off the brothers' access to the water supply. VOM is helping the brothers rebuild their farm, replanting 600 apricot trees and creating an irrigation system to replace their lost water supply. Pray that these brothers will be a faithful witness for Christ to their neighbors. Pray that they will bear fruit as they farm for the glory of God.
