“Gurli was active in the Danish Bible Society for many years, and served as President of the UBS General Committee from 1981-1984 (equivalent to today’s Global Council),” notes Terje Hartberg from United Bible Societies. “She was an unusually good communicator, especially to the young, and a highly respected counsellor and teacher. It is said that after the Anglican Archbishop Donald Coggan, who then was UBS President, met Gurli, he become convinced that ordination of women was the right thing to do.”

David was one of several Bible Society staff who, together with church partners, travelled to the worst affected regions over the weekend to bring practical help and assess the scale of the need for practical, spiritual and psychological support.

“We saw destroyed homes, entire families living under temporary shelters and hundreds of people sleeping in the streets,” he recalls. “It was impossible to be there and not cry.”

“The thirst for Scriptures among Christians here has only increased with all the unrest,” notes the Society’s director, who, along with other staff members, has stayed on despite the dangers. “The past five years have been very traumatic for Syrians in general, and for Syrian Christians in particular. Every family has a sad story. With this loss of hope, people are turning to God’s Word for comfort and encouragement.”
