ATHENS (Reuters) – Migrant and refugee arrivals to Greece from Turkey rose sharply in the first part of April, just a week after the European Union and Turkey struck an agreement intended to cut off the flow and as hundreds marched through central Athens to protest that deal. The demonstrators included human rights activists, students and migrants from among the thousands stranded in Greece by recent border closures across the Balkans.
Italy officials reported 1,350 people – mostly from Africa – were rescued from small boats taking a longer migration route across the Mediterranean as the weather warmed up. The EU Commission said on Tuesday that flows from Turkey to Greek was around 1,000 people a day.

Give the Bible To Refugees
Since January 2016 EEM has received over 100,000 requests for Bibles in Arabic and Farsi. In faith EEM is printing over 100,000 Bibles for these refugees in their language free of charge. This cost of just over $500,000 was neither foreseen nor budgeted in 2016.
Although our objective remains to serve the countries of the former Communist Bloc, we cannot ignore the unique and wonderful window of opportunity to share God’s Word with these refugees while they remain in this area. We know and trust that God will provide a way for us to meet the financial goal to provide His Word. Will you be a part of the help God provides?
