we will express it by loving our neighbors,
and when we truly love our neighbors,
it expresses our love for God."

"TOGETHER WITH GOD"

"Throughout history, women have joined together
to accomplish a purpose with great impact
than individual women could ever alone."
Women for JESUS

Millions of displaced families in the Middle East continue to struggle for survival in places where they are considered "outsiders."
Several years ago, Women for JESUS built a new laundromat to serve refugee families and since, God has blessed this ministry and opened doors to expand it to other cities in the Middle East. The impact on lives has been great ...
  • 150 refugee families use the laundromat regularly
  • Housed in a church, the laundromat opens doors for relationships & ministry
  • Isolated & displaced women are learning about their value to God through evangelistic films & other resources
  • Refugee children watch The Story of Jesus for Children & attend classes at the church's school
  • Discipleship groups have formed for women to learn about the Bible & be ministered to on a deeper level
  • Women can bring family members to periodic evening meetings to see one of the JESUS Film Project's evangelistic films & receive food & basic supplies
  • Entire families are being reached as local believers extend help & love
This ministry of compassion is drawing hearts 
closer to Jesus and is an important bridge
into the refugee community.


Given the opportunity to have a place to do laundry, have tea and meet others, watch Magdalena or The Story of Jesus for Children, doors are open for staff or church members to visit families at home and share more of Christ's love and care.

A lady shared that she was in this country for 15 months and she only experienced love from "followers of Jesus" as the Christians are known. She said that the word "love" is not part of her religious language. She was astonished to hear that they only have to pay for the soap and that the washing is free.

Feel! Touch!
Al hamdilula!, "praise God" was the translation as
women pressed clean clothes against their faces,
smelling and laughing ...!

The journey ... "Women for JESUS is passionate
about engaging with women & children from around the world,
wherever they are on their journey and helping them
experience the transforming joy of
becoming who they were created to be."
