Christian Refugees in Amman

"Tell our brothers and sisters in the Church ! that their brothers are in need" - Father Khalil, Jordan

Christians are fleeing Iraq and Syria into Jordan. The need for support is very great at this moment. I am a businessman from Atlanta, Georgia, who is in contact with Father Khalil Jaar at St. Mary's Church, Amman. You can see his efforts in the news stories below:

Father Khalil wrote the following plea to me on 20 October 2014:

"Thank you so much for your e mail I received and it was for me reason of great Joy and thanks to Lord Jesus !! because since I received in my church in Marka Amman a group of 150 families refugees from Mousul , day by day we are living together trusting the Lord who is taking care of us !!

Believe me dear brother that the situation of our christian refugees from Mousul is very very sad!! they still living upon a tremondous trauma !!! Hereby I send you some fotos who they are living , eating ..... They arrived having NOTHING with them !!

Now Winter is very close ! and very cold !! thyey are in bad need for clothes , and medicin for the children

That s why I do appreciate your e mail asking to come with some help to these our brothers !

Thank you Thank you so much !! let me tell you that your brothers in CHRIST are in bad need for your ptrayers for your help Please come to their Help .

Do what ever you can do ! tell our brothers and sisters in the Church ! that their brothers are in need
and what ever you do to one of these needy brothers ! to me said the Lord You are making." 

I am trying to raise $10,000 to send to Father Khalil as quickly as possible. If you can spare a dime, please share.

I know the honesty of fundraising is always a question. I am a business man living in Atlanta, Georgia, running a global company. The name of the company is Jacobs, Cordova & Associates. We work in Jordan and Iraq with USAID, among many other clients such as the World Bank, the OECD, the UN, and the European Commission.  You can call me at 1 [phone redacted] (my cell) with any questions. The money will be transferred from me to Messengers of Peace, who are described here: http://www.mensajerosdelapaz.com/docs/ingles.pdf and from them to Father Khalil.

We will document all money transfers and receipt of the money by Father Khalil with photos and documents. Please call me at the number above if you have any questions.
