Emad and Almess were appointed by CBM to serve at the Arab Baptist Theological Seminary (ABTS) in Lebanon. Emad serves as a lecturer in the areas of Old Testament and Islamic studies. His desire is to equip and empower students with sufficient tools to develop their understanding of the Old Testament and how to apply it in their Middle Eastern and North Africa setting. Emad is also developing resources and models for ministry in that context. While both Emad and Almess are involved in mentoring students in ministry and leadership skills, Almess also explores opportunities to work with Iraqi and Syrian refugees. Please pray for Almess as she facilitates an online course that helps students grow in the knowledge of the Lord. Please say a prayer of gratitude for a fruitful summer for their kids, Timothy and Nathaniel and for continued spiritual growth.
