“I didn’t know what else to do, so I prayed,” Afaf shared with our partners, Horizons International.
Afaf’s situation was terrible, her husband had died in Syria and she was raising four children in a tarp structure on the border of Lebanon in Syria. Now with COVID-19, Afaf didn’t know how she was going to provide for her children.
“Even though it was a very difficult situation, I just continued praising God for his blessings every day,” Afaf said.
One day, Afaf opened the door to her tent and saw on the doorstep a portion of food. She didn’t know where it had come from. With joy, Afaf examined the contents. “I couldn’t believe it,” Afaf said. “But I knew my neighbor also was in great need of food, and I felt God telling me to share the food with her. We wanted to keep it all. We had nothing, how could I share? But I did, we split it half and half.”
“The next day, I opened my door and an even bigger food portion showed up on my door again!” Afaf exclaimed. “I really believe this is God responding to my faith.”
