Acts of God School

Thousands of them are running around on the streets of Damascus - children of all ages at odd hours. You might think they've got terrible parents. But in the overcrowded refugee quarters of Iraqis fleeing violence at home, they don't have another option... until now. One very enterprising and compassionate pastor's wife couldn't just sit still while her Christian family suffered. She dreamed the impossible - a safe school for hundreds of these refugee children. With no help from the government she had only faith to see her through.

Turns out faith is all you need. That and a lot of prayer. Norm's guest, Jeff Meyer, tells us the story, today.

One very enterprising and compassionate pastor's wife couldn't just sit still while her Christian family suffered. She dreamed the impossible - a safe school for hundreds of these refugee children. With no help from the government she had only faith to see her through.
