Helping the Lebanese

After some investigating, I am aware of only one way to help the Lebanese Christians (and the Muslims by extension). Goods cannot be moved in and out of the country right now. The only thing that we can get in is money by wiring it. It just so happens, the Lebanese aren't short of goods, they are short of money since all business has effectively shut down. One group, in particular, could use our help. Since the current conflict began the Lebanese Christians have been using one of their schools as a shelter for Shiite families. They are feeding and housing them and continuing the children's education. This costs money. However, the group's primary source of income has dried up as a result of the fighting. They are providing an amazing ministry to the Shiites and if it is to continue, they need money. You can help by sending money to the Southern Baptists of Texas. 100% of all proceeds will go directly to the Lebanese Christians of the Lebanese Education Society. Send your money to:

PO Box 1988
Grapevine, Texas 76099

Make sure to mark the check "Lebanese Education Society"

Although in the future there will be more work to do, for now this will speak volumes.
