Middle East (MNN/Frontiers) — It’s only a few weeks into 2016, and yet, according to UNHCR, over 80,000 refugees have made the dangerous trip into Europe by boat.
What some may know is many of these refugees fleeing to Europe are Muslim. And Frontiers, a ministry to Muslims, wants to help refugees before they make the trek to Europe.
This summer, Frontiers will be leading some trips to various areas in the Middle East to serve and teach English while sharing the incredible hope of Christ through the Gospel.
