At Steer Incorporated we have some very generous partners in ministry. Above is a graph which shows the broad sweep of where we have been sending funds generated through Steer in the last 12 months. It gives us a boost to see these results and we hope it does the same for you to. We are thankful for God’s provision for making this possible.
Last week I read a blog by a Lebanese Christian.
“If you’ve heard about the Lebanese Civil War (1975–1990) you’ll know that there is a considerable negative history between Lebanese and Syrians, and that Syrian troops did not completely leave Lebanon before 2005. Before the Lebanese had time to forgive and forget painful memories, the Syria crisis started in 2011, and with it came an influx of Syrian refugees into Lebanon, such that our country today has the highest per capita concentration of refugees in the world, with one in every four persons a Syrian refugee – 80% women and children.

This is JOHN QUAY celebrating his 40 years (Tuesday 14th February 2017) as a staff member of MAF and Steer Incorporated, at the Court Street offices.
Up to 8 Christian missions use the premises where John helps Steer Incorporated each day and others as needed. His desire is to serve God, through a generous use of his time.
“Every mission in our building benefits from John’s friendly assistance and fellowship, especially through his habit of bringing me Irish jokes and the rest of us treats – chocolate and potato chips are the favourites!!”, said Tony Crook, CEO of Steer Incorporated.
Now in his seventies, John challenges all of us to remain healthy in body and spirit. To John, goes our equivalent of the Gold Logie.
I think that people who fish, have a lot going for them! For me, I don’t find fishing easy but it can be very rewarding – emotionally, physically, spiritually – it gives me a time to reflect.
