Election season in Lebanon wrapped up when citizens went to the polls on May 15. Wissam Nasrallah, COO at LSESD, reflects on how Christians should engage with politics.
Right now, the earth feels shaky – the war in Ukraine, Lebanon’s elections, the decade-plus long Syrian civil war. Yet we believe that God has conquered death. One day, all will be renewed. So we stand as one body, demonstrating this hope for the world through worship and acts of compassion. Will you join us?
Welcome to the MEBO Family of Ministries!
MEBO works closely with Middle Eastern Christian leaders on a multi-track mission to strengthen the witness of the Church in the Middle East. The family of ministries are six, locally-led, faith-based ministries united under the Lebanese Society for Educational and Social Development including the Arab Baptist Theological Seminary, Dar Manhal Al Hayat publishing house, the Beirut Baptist School, SKILD Center (Smart Kids with Individual Learning Differences), Baptist Children and Youth Ministry, and MERATH (Middle East Revive and Thrive).
A message from Dr. Nabil Costa, MEBO board member and CEO at LSESD
We empower the church in the Middle East to communicate the Good News of Jesus Christ through outreach, education and love of neighbor.
Because we follow Jesus Christ, who identified with and responded compassionately to the needs of the vulnerable and marginalized, calling us to love our neighbor and saying “blessed are the peacemakers,” MEBO partners with a family of ministries that are reflecting Him in their context with intentionality and excellence.
In a 1981 sermon titled “Choices” where he talks about the importance of choosing to worship God despite our weaknesses, Billy Graham makes the apt observation that “young people today want a challenge”.
On May 2, BCYM (Baptist Children and Youth Ministry) led a children’s event for over 170 children! Invited by MIDADE Maghdouche and Abouna Chady, our team had the privilege to spend the day singing hymns, sharing Bible stories, crafting, and enjoying lunch with the community.
