This girl on the streets of Turkey is one of more than one thousand Syrian refugees I met in less than eight days there.  I was waiting on my ride to go to a refugee camp when all of a sudden, there she was. She unfolded her sign and motioned with one of her hands that she was hungry.  While we didn’t share language, it was clear that she was asking for food or money for food.  Perhaps out of habit or some sense of panic on her behalf, I looked down the street one direction and then leaned out into the street looking the other direction. No family in sight. This seven or eight or nine year old girl speaking only Arabic in a Turkish world, had no family in sight. Just her eyes and mine. No DHS. No shelter to take her to. What would you do? What will we do? Her sign has a compelling mandate, “May God help you, help us.” This weekend before Christmas, we will be talking about Jesus who was born a refugee. I hope you will come be a part of the story.
