To the Middle East!
I am excited to announce I will be heading to a region in the Middle East right before Christmas. God clearly opened a door for me to travel to a city that sits right on the border of Syria and is home to over 450,000 Syrian refugees. It is estimated that half of these refugees are youth. These young children and teens face significant challenges and they are not receiving sufficient attention or aid. Most are not in school, this has only increased with COVID19. Many factors leave the youth vulnerable to trafficking, early marriage and exploitation. Criminal and militant groups often take advantage of their vulnerability as well by targeting them as recruits. This specific city I will be in is struggling economically. There are not sufficient jobs for locals, let alone refugees.
I will be spending some time in this region working with these refugees. I will be bringing the Word in Arabic, helping provide physical needs, using my TEFL teaching experience, helping support and empower families and youth, serving and ministering to these beautiful people who have suffered immensely over the past 11 years. This will be a new city and new type of ministry I will be jumping into with faith. God moved rather unexpectedly and powerfully upon my heart to travel to this specific city. Though I will be traveling to a city that sits in the center of a great deal of tension, crisis and conflict I am fully confident the Lord is leading me there for such a time as this and He is already preparing hearts to receive Him!
Please pray with me for provision, support, protection and favor.
I am so grateful for you and your partnership in this ministry.
It is a joy that together we can sow into the lives of those God is encountering from the Middle East. In order to travel and follow the call of God wholeheartedly and in a focused way I am developing a team of partners. This team will play a crucial role in praying for me and in helping provide the Word, food, clothing, shelter, medicine and other ministry expenses unto serving these people in the best possible way!
I am currently 55% funded, (such an amazing blessing!) but in order to fully give myself to this work God’s placed before me, I am in need of more partnership. He has used the simple means of finances to bring salvation, healing, save lives, bring dignity, help refugees get passports and support family businesses! I am excited and expectant to see how the Lord will continue to use our partnership through prayer and finances in the future.
