About 1,000 displaced Muslim Palestinians have packed inside a Christian church in Gaza, in hopes that it will not be targeted with Israeli rocket fire. Saint Porphyrios Church of Gaza City is providing food and shelter for the refugees while fighting between Gaza and Israel rages on. Some 50 mosques have been bombed since the start of the conflict; Israelis reportedly believe that Hamas’ weapons are stored inside the mosques. Archbishop Alexios has remained positive despite the terrible circumstances in Gaza City. He reported that one woman gave birth to a healthy baby in the sanctuary. “You see, in Gaza there is also life, not only death,” Alexios said.
BIBLE STUDY: Romans 8:28-39
PRAISE: God that there is life in Gaza city through the witness of the small Christian Church. Pray that many Muslims will respond to Christ’s love.
