A Christian church in Beirut loved and served their neighbors through cleaning up the hospitals damaged in the explosion.
Bibliatodo News reported that Andre Argente and Michel Matar started the initiative. They gathered their members and ministered to the affected. Pastor Andre shared their efforts of solidarity in his social media account.
The team went for the hospitals because hospitals are greatly needed in Lebanon today. Last Tuesday’s explosion has put a strain on the already struggling hospitals in Beirut. But the blast also damaged several city hospitals so severely that they can no longer admit patients. Because of this, saving lives now outweighs the threat of the coronavirus.
Pastor Andre said, “Thank God, we were able to clean everything up. Everything is clean inside. God is faithful.” The ministry finished cleaning up the debris and glasses inside Hospital des Soeurs du Rosale.
“Everything here was made of glass and rubble. But we managed to get it all out. Keep praying for us. Tomorrow we will be here again to clean up this and other hospitals that need it,” he added.
Also, the team set up a support tent beside the hospital to provide food and water for the volunteers. They hope many volunteers will join them because the need is so great.
Solidarity in Beirut
“We thank you for your prayers, for whatever comes from the Lord God is welcome. We walk here in Beirut and almost everything we go through is destroyed. So, as a Church, we have to go to the countryside, help people clean, eat too, because many people have lost their homes, cannot cook and have no food,” he shared.
He continued, “So this is what we are doing now, basically. Now we’re going to look for more volunteers, because the need is so great.”
Pastor Andre ended his statement with thanks to the Lebanese people who helped. “I am very grateful to the people in general and I am not only talking about the Church, but about the Lebanese people. It is not the government that is helping, but the people.”
