HE WILL HOLD US FAST
We are so grateful for the many partners who have sustained the work of God in the Middle East this year
Who We Are
We are a Lebanese nonprofit that seeks to strengthen the witness of the Church in the Arab World through inclusive education, community development, and church discipleship.
We work alongside local schools, ministries, and churches throughout the Arab World. Through these relationships, we see God at work, even in times of war and crisis. Come share in His miraculous, life-giving work of transforming communities and changing lives.
February 2023 Newsletter
A devastating earthquake has rocked Syria and Turkey in the past few weeks, leaving thousands of people dead and injured. With buildings and homes destroyed, countless people became homeless in the cold winter with no refuge.
OP-ED: Can Lebanon Handle Another Earthquake?
In March,1956, a 5.2 magnitude earthquake shook the Lebanese mountainous Chouf area, destroying thousands of homes, and killing 136 people, and its impact became an enduring historical milestone throughout the sixties and seventies.
Update on Syria: Through Him Who Gives Us Strength
All through the month of February, multiple earthquakes and aftershocks hit Turkey and Syria, killing, injuring, and displacing tens of thousands of people in the middle of a winter storm.
That person is like a tree planted by streams of water, which yields its fruit in season and whose leaf does not wither— whatever they do prospers.
Equipping and edifying the Church in the MENA Region
(ABTS & DMAH)
As the Church in the Arab world continues to expand and adapt to its ever-changing surroundings, there is a strong need to ensure that Arab Christian leaders are well-prepared to lead in their local communities and that the people of God are well-fed to be able to grow in faith and understanding. For this reason, ABTS and DMAH work to ensure that Christian leaders and believers across the MENA region are well equipped to engage with others from different faith backgrounds and stand firm in their faith and spread the Word of God.
Relief and Development
Restoring Hope to the Hopeless
(MERATH & BCYM)
After eight years of unabated human displacement, rather than decreasing, the needs of those affected by the violence in neighboring countries has only increased. Through the work of MERATH and BCYM, LSESD is able to respond to the ongoing refugee crisis and reach out to the most vulnerable in the community. These needs include not only material and educational needs, but also spiritual ones.
Providing Quality Education and Advocating for those with Learning Differences
(BBS & SKILD)
Both BBS and SKILD have made it their mission to provide quality education for all types of learners. Learning style assessments and behavioral programs are at the heart of their mission to show children that they are capable of achieving great things despite their individual learning styles. By providing a learning environment that is not only accepting but also fun and incorporates faith-based values, BBS and SKILD help all children to see that they are valuable and have the right to succeed and enjoy life.
