Please pray for our partner in Lebanon, the Arab Baptist Theological Seminary (ABTS). The students that come to the seminary arrive from many different places across Africa and Middle East, and often from sensitive areas where the church can experience persecution or where believers are few. Please pray for these crucial leaders, many of whom return to their countries to minister in some of the most difficult situations. Pray for their studies, their churches, and communities. For the youth and families they minister to, for the persecuted, and for those who face challenges of poverty and extreme climate in their home countries. Pray that this strategic school would help equip laypeople to reach those who may never otherwise have the chance to hear the message of the gospel.
