We're Headed To Lebanon!
Many times when we think of the Arab world, we think of violence, war, and chaos. Or so we’ve been trained to think by mass media. While we can not ignore the fact that struggle does exist and is a reality for far too many, the existence of these things should never be a reason to look at this part of the world without hope. We believe there is a reason to be optimistic about things taking place in Arab communities. Today, many people are talking about these challenges and taking incredible strides towards defeating them.
This June, we will be traveling to Lebanon for an amazing opportunity. We have been invited to join a dialogue for 5 days with a select group of regional and global leaders on the topics of persecution, minoritization, and emigration. We will also be tackling several other topics that both Christian and Muslim communities face in the area and abroad.
We have been in communication with one of the event organizers who has also offered to help us make connections to begin building bridges in the region.
This will be an opportunity to learn and take part in discussing ways the global Church can begin to tackle real challenges that people are facing in the Arab world, as well as make connections that will lead to future project facilitation in the region.
We would love for you to join us! Here are a couple of ways you can help:
- Pray. These meetings will be filled with prayer and seeking God’s wisdom for next steps. It would help us if you joined in by praying for our preparation and participation in this trip as well as for wisdom during our dialogues.
- Give. This will be made possible by the generous donations of people like you. The trip will cost $4,000 total. Not only would we appreciate your gifts but we would also be willing to accept air mile donations as well. (If interested in donating air miles, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org).
- Follow. Follow us on Instagram, Twitter, and Facebook. Or you can also sign up for our Newsletter to receive updates.
