As soon as Andrew from Cry Out Ministries arrived in Lebanon, he felt the unrest gripping the country.
A friend met Andrew and his family at the airport, but Andrew’s friend had bad news: “[He said] ‘The van is here to pick you up is stuck, unfortunately, behind some roadblocks. Because there are riots going on.’ We ended up waiting in the airport for I think two hours.” Andrew says these riots have been sporadic. Some days protestors block roads with burning tires, while other days see calm streets.
It’s exhausting, especially for people who have endured years of government corruption and financial crisis. Andrew says, “It hasn’t just been a breakneck speed since COVID-19. It’s been since the Syrian civil war and the influx of refugees, coupled with corruption in the government. Then COVID-19 hit, and an explosion in Beirut. It all has created this massive need in the country for people to bring hope and to bring peace and to bring the light of Christ.”
