When it comes to helping Syrians who have fled war, few have had more experience than Dr. Paul Kingery. Dr. Paul felt called to the Middle East more than 10 years ago and has spent most of his time living in northern Iraq close to the Iraq border.
Nearly 4 years ago Dr. Paul felt the Lord call him to a small Christian village called Seje, a few miles outside the city of Dohuk and only a short drive from the Syrian border.
Dr. Paul is the Director of MedEast which has provided tons of aid to many of the refugees living in his area.
MedEast has provided food, diapers, oil, heaters, blankets, clothing, sanitation facilities, education, and many more items to those that have been displaced by war. They help other NGO’s in the area to adapt and petition for government funding and grants. They provide a base for research, training, and human services.
More than anything they fill in the gaps in government services for the under-served.
BTJ partnered with Dr. Paul providing food, clothing, education, sanitation facilities, and a safe house for women escaping ISIS to go.

Pray for the mission work that is being carried out on a regular basis by individuals like Dr. Paul and his team. Pray for the people that they are serving and the war torn area that they are serving in.
You, my brothers and sisters, were called to be free. But do not use your freedom to indulge the flesh, rather, serve one another humbly in love. For the entire law is fulfilled in keeping this one command: “Love your neighbor as yourself.”
