JORDAN - What's it like to leave home, walk for miles, and end up in a foreign land? For the past two years, hundreds of thousands of Syrians have faced that challenge.
Osama is just one of Syria's 600,000 refugees.
"The situation is Syria is very bad, very dangerous," he said. "President Assad destroy everything. He destroy Hams, I live in Hams. He destroyed the city and most of them have no work, no food, no water, no electricity. They are in a bad situation now."
According to the United Nations, these refugees are spread across Turkey, Lebanon, and Jordan.
Now some of those refugees and their children are finding relief as some of the churches in Jordan are trying to redeem the tragedy in Syria.
Many of these Syrian refugees are experiencing Christian love for the very first time.
"They say you treat us like a human and not like others," one pastor said.
This pastor reaches out to hundreds of these refugees. It's dangerous work. CBN News has hidden his identity for security reasons.
"Take this opportunity to show the light in the darkness because the people who go outside Syria, they are hopeless," the pastor said. "And also before they didn't have the chance to listen about the Gospel or about Jesus. But right now we have the chance to show them the love and mercy and our prayer for what we do for them."
Their help includes hot meals, church services for the children, and clothes for families who have nothing but what is on their backs.
The situation has opened up opportunities for the refugees to talk with someone about their situation now. Many of the Muslim women, some now widowed, would not have stepped into a church in Syria.
"They don't allow anybody of them (to) talk to them about Jesus. But here they are in need and we don't want to say we are using their needs," one person said.
"But while we are feeding them and taking care of them, there is opportunity to share the love of God, which is more important than the food and than the clothes. So we are caring about their souls as we care about their bodies," the pastor said.
It's a ministry Osama appreciates.
"We need it. It's good for them right now because we didn't have work or job. We need any help from anybody now. It makes a difference for us right now," he said.
