HOW TO DEFEAT ISLAMIC EXTREMISM

Recently with some friends, I was discussing Global Advance’s impact through the Alpha Relief initiative at the front lines of the Gospel around the world. A military intelligence contract worker made a poignant observation based on firsthand experience: the transformative power of the Gospel is the first line of defense against terrorism. 

Empowered by your support through Alpha Relief, frontline Kingdom leaders become catalytic for the fulfilling of the Great Commission. Together we can be a supply line to God’s people working in hotbeds of Islamic extremism throughout the Middle East, North Africa, and Asia.


In Syria, for example, our dear brothers risk their lives to bring emergency relief to families in embattled Damascus. In the winter months, this took the form of portable heaters and blankets, as well as car batteries with LED lights due to the constant power outages. As days lengthen and temperatures warm we’ve transitioned to much-needed food supplies: rice, cooking oil, olive oil, sugar, powdered milk, lentils, beans, and canned goods. Small Bible-study groups have been formed, which in turn has sparked rising local leaders to help coordinate community outreaches.

All of this comes together as a physical example of Christ’s love expressed through His body, the Church, at the epicenter of a global war. Jesus said that “The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy; I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full” (John 10:10 NIV). Will you partner with Global Advance’s Alpha Relief initiative to offer this life Jesus promised to so many in Syria and “Red Zones” around the world? They are asking, “What does my future hold?” I invite you: rewrite their future.


Gratefully,
