Syria (Mission Network News) — In all the tangled mess of the war in Syria, Kurdish forces are also part of the fray. The Kurds, a minority stateless group of people, have helped push back ISIS militants in northern Syria ever since the terrorists targeted major Kurdish populations.
Kurdish soldiers have continued to engage ISIS along the Euphrates River and in key cities such as Aleppo. Since they have to keep a low profile at night, the Kurd forces needed small flashlights to see as they cook meals. What they got were flashlights … built into audio Bibles.
Audio Scripture Ministries’ JP Sundararajan says a Christian travelling to Syria recently contacted their ministry about their audio Bible players for this purpose.
“We have a representative out in Oregon named Don who handed us this amazing story of how he had been connected with an organization called the Free Burma Rangers who are a humanitarian organization that works in pretty high-conflict zones. Through a series of providential meetings, God enabled us to send about 50 of our audio Bibles in the Arabic and Kurdish languages to the frontlines, really, of Syria where soldiers who are battling ISIS were able to secure them.”
