Our Bridge of Hope School is starting next week and we have about 20 children registered to start. We need your help! We don’t have enough funds to take care of the monthly expenses such as transportation, snacks, teacher’s salary. This school is touching the lives of these children in a wonderful way, teaching them how to pray, sing, read & write in English & Arabic. We also have a family in our church today because of the school. Please consider partnering with us by sponsoring a child.

Giving God the glory for a great mission trip to Egypt. We had several Bible studies and one church service. Six people responded to the Gospel and were baptized in Jesus Name for the remission of their sins and two were filled with the Holy Ghost speaking in other tongues as in the Book of Acts! Continuing to pray for the new mission work started in Egypt believing God for a great revival!!! #MiddleEast4Christ
Please welcome the newest member at our church in Beirut!❤️
Giving God glory for a wonderful church service in Beirut today! Brother Jacob taught discipleship class. God visited us also during church, we had a powerful move of the Holy Ghost & a great response to altar call!
Early this year, this sister took her son and crossed over a bridge that connects the area where she lives, to where the church is located. While walking she was praying that God would lead her and her family to a church. She saw the cross on the front of the building. It was a Thursday night, she walked inside during our prayer meeting. She felt drawn to come to the front, knelt at the altar, and cried out to God.
The following Sunday she brought her husband to Church, and soon they both gave their lives to God and were baptized in the Name of Jesus!
It wasn't long after that, God filled this Sister with the Holy Ghost. They kept on coming faithfully to the church, receiving the Word of God with joy. This past Sunday, her husband received the baptism of the Holy Ghost also with the evidence of speaking in tongues.
God's faithful! #MiddleEast4Christ
This young man visited our church today asking to learn more about Christ. He confessed that he was tired of living in sin, desired change and couldn't find it in religion. After two Bible studies, explaining that only the blood of Jesus washes sins and only the Name of Jesus delivers. He came back tonight to prayer meeting, repented of his sins and was baptized into Christ according to the book of Acts. To God be the glory! #MiddleEast4Christ
We're asking all our friends to join us in prayers for Lebanon as the Lebanese government gave today the green light to the Lebanese army to go to war against ISIS.
The Lebanese army has been preparing for weeks for this battle.
ISIS (Daesh in Arabic) occupies a large area in northeast of Lebanon (about 90 miles from Beirut) along the border of Syria. In the last several years, ISIS has been sending suicide bombers into various parts of Lebanon including southern Beirut. They have also in the past year attacked several Christian villages in Lebanon and have taken several Lebanese soldiers as hostage.
Lebanon is the only remaining country in the Middle East were the Gospel can be preached without an immediate threat, churches can be planted and Christians can enjoy a great level of freedom. Lebanon serves as a safe haven to many who are religiously persecuted.
We're asking our friends to join us in prayer for these 7 specifics:
1. Pray 4 quick victory over ISIS
2. Pray that war won't spill over inside of Lebanon
3. Pray against sleeping cells being activated inside the country
4. Pray 4 protection for the Lebanese Army fighting ISIS
5. Pray 4 protection for the U.S. Special forces providing training & support to the Lebanese army in Lebanon U.S. Special Forces in Lebanon
6. Pray 4 protection for the Christian churches
7. Pray 4 protection for US citizens residing in Lebanon
Thank you in advance!
May God keep Lebanon as a Beacon of Hope in the Middle East!
“Is it not yet a very little while till Lebanon shall be turned into a fruitful field, and the fruitful field be esteemed as a forest? In that day the deaf shall hear the words of the book, And the eyes of the blind shall see out of obscurity and out of darkness.” Isaiah 29:17-18 NKJV
Thank you to all of those who've contributed to our Middle East Project 5000. Because of your giving we were able to help 8 needy Lebanese & Syrian families with food packages in Beirut.
God bless you!
God continues to draw men & women off the streets in the Middle East!
Three men walked into our church in Beirut during prayers meeting this week. They felt drawn to come inside and prayed and sought God at the altar. Our ushers prayed with them and gave them each copies of our Apostolic Bibles!
This is becoming a normal event as we continue to see people walk in to the church for the first time and finding salvation!
We’re believing God to continue to pour out of His spirit in the Middle East and save as many such as should be saved!
We thank the Lord for a wonderful church service in Beirut Lebanon this past Sunday!
The Lord continues to draw people to Him. Brother J. Azar preached a powerful message on pursuing God. Several repeat visitors sought the Lord with tears at the altar. Believing God for a mighty outpouring of His spirit in the Middle East!
