What a joy it has been to be able to look back and witness God’s work, protection, and guidance in every step taken throughout the past 25 years. From day one, when we first started, till this very day, we have seen and first-handedly felt God’s presence in our lives and in the lives of the people we served and partnered with.
We gathered to celebrate His faithfulness before ours. We gathered to celebrate the power of His gospel to change lives rather than our persuasive efforts. We gathered to celebrate His love and compassion for the brokenhearted rather than our acts of service. It is with humility but also with great responsibility that we say all this.
From Seeds to Harvest
We first started our ministry as a small organization in Lebanon, not knowing where we were heading but trusting in an all-knowing, faithful, sovereign God that had and still has a plan to redeem all things unto Himself.
Throughout all the hardships and upheavals our country went and is still going through, and as tiring and frustrating as the situation is in Lebanon: political unrest, economic downfall, increased poverty, widespread social tensions, and refugee crisis, we choose to look at ourselves not as victims, nor as passive citizens, but as hopeful realists looking at this broken world and knowing that we have the most precious gift to give: hope. We have El Shaddai, God Almighty, who is the light that shines through an extremely dark reality.
Christians in the Middle East are meant to be catalysts and have a responsibility to build bridges, reconcile communities, and spread the perfume of Christ. We see Lebanon as a hub and a gateway to the Middle East where we are called to be on a mission with God digging deeper routes in this region through intentional collaboration and by leveraging different networks to unify our goal and vision and serve Him to the best of our abilities.
