This podcast we talk with Beau Wirick, who plays the character of Sean Donahue on the long-running ABC series, “The Middle.” Beau recently traveled to Jordan with World Vision Celebrity Ambassador, and star of “The Middle” and “Everybody Loves Raymond” Patricia Heaton. They visited Syrian refugees, went to refugee camps and saw the humanitarian response.
And we also had a chance to chat with Christopher Hale, executive director of Catholics in Alliance for the Common Good, about his trips to Iraq and Lebanon. Hale also is a columnist for TIME and a contributor for FOX News.
What you can do to help Syrian refugees:
- Learn more about Syria’s refugee crisis: Violent reactions to peaceful protests throughout the country descended Syria into chaos in early 2011. Syrian children and families have borne the brunt of the conflict’s disastrous consequences. Hundreds of thousands have been killed and more than half of the population — 11 million people — have been displaced from their homes.
- Pray for people affected by conflict in Syria: God, You love the little children. Each Syrian child is precious to You. Please protect children in the middle of this conflict. We ask You to bring peace to Syria for the sake of Your children. In Your name, Amen.
- Become a refugee responder: Your monthly gift can help refugees, and make a lasting difference for vulnerable, displaced children and families.
This podcast features music from Jason Yost Band.
