Even weeks later, the impact in physical damage and lives lost continues to unfold in southern Turkey and northern Syria, and we have received reports and updates from our mission partners in the affected area. In particular, we heard that the Presbyterian Church in Aleppo, Syria, has sustained much damage. In the midst of it all, Rev. Ibrahim Nseir and his elders have been able to open a relief center at Aleppo College, ministering to hundreds of people in need of shelter and support.
